Brook Trout by Dennis Nelson

State, regional, the NTA, and The World Show competitions exhibit some of the most artistic taxidermy being produced. At each show there are pieces that seem to grab you; you are compelled to stop and look at them closely. Dennis Nelson of Darby, Montana, captured that mystique with this brook trout composition. In four states it won many major awards, including the WASCO award for most artistic entry and Taxidermists' Choice award twice. At the 2005 NTA it took a first in the Open Division. Needless to say, it grabbed a cover of BREAKTHROUGH.
