Check this fish out!
« on: May 24, 2011, 10:15:16 AM »
Alex at Advantage Taxidermy just sent me this Brookie he did yesterday.  It is a reproduction mount and a good sized fish to boot.  I think the lucky guy who caught the fish will be happy.

From the pictures that I seen of Alex's work, he does have a talent creating reproductions

Nice!!!!! that is a wicked brookie.  I cant wait till I can start getting mounts done. The better half says there is no way that I will ever be allowed to have a mount in the house. But if done and placed tastefully I dont see why not. One I want for sure is a mount of a hog walleye chasing down a couple small perch around some sort of structure. And that one WILL go above a basement fireplace. I'll just put it up when she is not home. Any other mounts will probably have to go in my "fishing room". But I think most mounts that I will do will be with some sort of background as well. Logs or a painted background on rocks or something. I think just a plain fish mount can get a little tacky and unspectacular

I will be getting a replica mount if I ever land a hog walleye in the 14-15lbs range. Probably do something similar to Relic and have it chasing some perch or minnows.

Other then that though I don't think I would get any other mounts done up.

He does some nice work. Will have to remember him if I ever decide to have a fish mounted.  I understand the replicas are just as good as the mounts and you can let the fish go.

X2 on both the quality of the mounts and going with replicas.
