I have been mounting fresh water fish for well over a 3 decades. I #taxidermy any type of freshwater #fish from #bass to #trout. All fish taxidermy mounts are air brushed using expensive high quality airbrush paints that are specifically designed and formulated for a fish taxidermy. Special compounds and pigments are needed when air brushing a skin mount fish taxidermy. Without them added to the paint, proper adhesion and transparency cannot be accomplished. I only use the highest detailed quality when it comes to fish eyes. My fish eyes are the best the market has to offer and are so detailed, you’d think they were real.
Most of the fish I mount come locally from our creeks and rivers. I do a fair share of brown trout and brook trout taxidermy caught in the Otego and Schenevus creeks, along with the big brown trout occasionally caught out of Otsego Lake. Lake trout and salmon are also brought to Clffords Taxidermy for a trophy wall mount. Largemouth bass and walleye taxidermy is also an ongoing thing here at Clffords Taxidermy. Many of our big walleyes are caught out of the Susquehanna river and Goodyear lake.
Turn-A-Round time on most fish mounts is 10 to 12 months. Oily skinned fish such as trout and salmon require artificial heads which are reproduced here in our shop.
If you are interested in a reproduction fish mount, we can accommodate you as well. Call or text us for a price quote.
