Painting a Bluegill

Painting a Bluegill

A bluegill probably represents a fisherman’s first fish over other species of freshwater fish. They are fun to catch, great to eat, and make very attractive mounts. When I was building my taxidermy clientele back in the early 1960s and 1970s, I completed three stringer mounts of bluegills, with a few other members of the sunfish family added in.

Glenn and the Wren

Mike Boyce

Thirty years ago in Issue 26 we published that first interview we did in January of 1991 with Mike Boyce. At that time Mike was 10 years into a vision and goal. We very likely received more positive comments about...
A Fish Full of History

A Fish Full of History

We have all received that call from a customer asking us to restore an old mount, and by the way of experience, we have learned in most cases to say no. Thus began my day in February 2020 when I took such a call...
