I'm an ocasional trout fisherman up here in West Yorkshire. More to the point however, I am also a 60 year old chap who retired early last December after 40 years of being a professional Taxidermist. This past ten months have driven me stirr crazy. So much so that I have decided to only semi retire, and only mount fish. Fish were a speciality for me, despite me doing hundreds over the years, compared to birds and mamals I didn't mount anywhere near as many. I have worked on most animals large, and small from Pygmy shrews to Shire horses. I am definitely past the labour intensive job that doing full red reed mounts entails, as do full fox as another example. But I am quite capable of handling any fish should anyone land a specimen they would like preserving.
Please forgive me if this post is unacceptable here. I am not intending on spamming for business. I am intending on trying to let the correct community for fish taxidermy know of my whereabouts.
If the admin do find this post unacceptable, please delete it. If you think I could be of use to the other members here, then maybe you could suggest how to make my wherabouts avaiable within these boards.
Kind regards all,
