I want to share an Anglers Artistry student Photo essay on Lt II. Nick Borowski USAF. Nick spent a week with me to learn how to skin, carve a body from foam hand paint eyes, learn to rebuild and last paint a mounted a fish to completion. Nick also painted a Reproduction Steelhead which was provided by Dave Campbell of Tacoma WA which was shown early on the forum... First Nick purchased a great Brown Trout from Cecil Baird of IN who raised some truly exceptional fish. Here is a glance in to Nick’s time learning how to do fish taxidermy. At the end I will give the paint schedule we used to achieve Nicks Great fish. It all begins with a good template of a fish. We covered the identification of anatomy and body shape. Nick learned that a good fish starts with accurate drawings. The nest step is in cutting out and shaping the body of the fish using foam. Once the foam is cut out the roughing out of the body is next followed by the sanding and shaping to size.
