There are two ways to mount a fish. One is the real skin mount and the other one is a glass repo mount. To do the skin mount one must caught the the fish and then take a pic of it,wrap it in a cloth-towel,old shirt-and keep it cold. If one is in a mountain lake or camping you can bury it in salt in a bag and it will keep for a few days. Bring it into the taxidermist as soon as you can then before mother nature starts on it. Here at Capp’s Taxidermy Studio LLC we do more skin mounts than repo’s . Here we hand make the body and using the real one as a reference,take a mold of its head and make one out of glass so it looks like the moment you took it out of the water. Then when all dried,it is then painted by airbrush with lacquer paints and a enamel top coat for real life perfection . The repo’s are bought by the two measurements ,length x width. There is a lot of junk on the market now and this studio only buys the best there is and you cannot tell the difference between the repo and a real skin mount. They will come in and the fins are placed on and sometimes the head too. All the litte defects are fixed and on to the paint part of the process. The repo one will be completed faster than the skin mounts for the main reason they do not have to dry. When choosing a fish taxidermist, one must check out all of their work in person and on their web site, don’t just call around for a rate for real good fish taxidermist are hard to find and not everyone is created equal. Have fun and go fishing and bring someone with you…….
