    Default Fish Mount from Picture

    While hunting I caught and released a nice 40" Northern and was looking to have it replicated from the picture. There are a few outfits on the internet that do this, but would rather deal with someone locally here in Fbx or in the state to handle this if possible. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Thanks

    I had this outfit do several fish for me, unfortunately they're not in AK however the work they do is outstanding.

    When I had my rainbow done they wanted, length, girth and Male/Female so they could get the correct replica. Call John or Kelly at Profish and they will help you out with everything.

    Talking Profish

    I just talked to John at Profish : replicas- $15 per inch skin mount- $12 per inch
    I can send a picture of my rainbow if you would like to see some of their work. There web site shows a lot of their work. The Idaho State fish and game picked them to provide all the native replica's for their office.
    Tell them John in Anchorage recommended them.

    Those are really nice. I can't wait to catch a nice Northern so I can have him mounted. Would also like one of each species of Salmon although my taxidermy bill is getting outrageous as of late. Hey... maybee that means my hunting skills are getting better. LOL

    Same here on my bill. My taxidermist loves it though. Have no fish yet. I would love to get a nice King on the wall. After seeing the Rep VS skin mounts I think I will go with a rep. Lot less care for them.
