    George The older I get, the better I was.

    Marc, since you're interested in "big" words, perhaps you'd consider looking up "assumption". I'm presupposing the word you used was intended to be germaine to this discussion. The customer was fully appraised of the situation and had been informed that even with "his" skin mount, all he would get in return was the body skin. He had considered going with a fiberglass reproduction when I informed him of the situation but opted for the replacement "hide". I seem to sense that many of the "fish specialist" suffer from similar malady that is probably best described by the #2 definition of "narcissistic". Try that one on for size next time you're tempted into an ASSumption.

    I'd like to help, but in Wisconsin, we can't sell raw fish. Unless they are mounted. I've caught and released over 5,000 trout and salmon in my lifetime, i'm 33. I have only kept 20 trout and 3 salmon in 33 years of fishing. I have 3 mounted, 3 in the freezer, and 17 I ate.

    Just an idea, but you could go to wal-mart and buy a salmon for 15 bucks and take the skin and paint it whatever u want. I played a joke on a fried of mine one time, with a 36 inch king I painted like a brown trout. Just an idea.

    Correction: You can sell "raw fish" but not out of public waters. I sell lots of my private farm fish to taxidermists in Wisconsin. See below for legality.
