  • Taxidermist

    I've got a couple of fish I'm looking to get repros done on. I was wanting to get the general opinion of the group in regards to who they recommend. What I am looking for is someone who can do a "leopard rainbow" a large Situk Steelhead and a sockeye.

    Thoughts?

    Mark Oslund! No question. http://rltaxidermy.com/ He is one of, if not the best that I have seen.

        I have never had a fish mounted. when June or I get our hog we are going with Mark. I have seen his work and to many people suggest him. His rainbows mounts are just amazing.

          another vote for Mark. He has the largest supply of rainbow and steelhead molds availble. Not to mention his king molds. If you caught it, he can match it. You won't find a better paint job on a more accurate body. 907-344-6805 Suzy will probably answer, Mark is usually at the shop working, she drives him pretty hard this time of year!

            Did somebody say Mark Oslund?

            Yeah, he gets my vote as well.

              I have a char that was done by Mark Osland. It is OK. I think his specialty is salmon. For trout of grayling repros I would go with Eric Knowlton at reel trout studios. He did a rainbow and a grayling for a buddy... absolutley fabulous!

                Woodland Taxidermy on the Palmer-Wasilla hwy. Larry does excellent work and Situk steelhead are his specialty.

                  Woody, if there is something you are not happy with take it back to Mark, he will make the adjustments you want. I have seen his char and IMO, they are fabulous. Give him a call, I am sure he would be happy to talk about it with you.

                    Which species of "Char" did he do for you? Lake Trout, Bull Trout, Arctic Char, Brook Trout, or maybe was it a Dolly Varden?

                      I see a bunch of votes for Mark Oslund. I'd like to see if there is more of a market out there. Any other recommendations?

                      JMSS, I emailed twin rivers...I guess they didn't want my business. They never emailed back!:confused:

                        I had a king done by charlie, here in North Pole. Very nice work. I dont recall the name of his studio but its in the neighborhood of Laurnace and Rich.

                          Charlie Livingston takes forever doesnt he? JMSS has had a couple fish done by him and he says it took over a year almost 18 months. I'm not down with that.

                            That's because he is a 4 time state champion and he also has my vote. Take a drive to sportsmans in anchorage go back to the fishing section and look up on the wall 90% of the fish on that wall are ones he did, He currently has my salmon shark jaws and tail he is doing and I can't wait til he's done

                              Mark also won the National Championship in 2000 with a grayling in the Cold Water Reproduction category. IMO, the only reason he only has 4 State Championships is those are the only ones he as entered (that I know of). He hasn't put a fish in competition in quite a while.
