Why pick fish reproduction over a skin mount?
You will eliminate many of the problems associated with traditional skin mounts. Some common problems are: (1) Skin shrinkage (2) A continuous odor you can never get rid of, brittle fins and skin that have a tendency to fall apart (3) Skin mounts leak natural oils that cause the paint to fade and the scales to lift.
A carbon graphite fiberglass fish reproduction is an extremely durable, long lasting alternative to traditional skin mounts. The replica will withstand hot or cold climates and will never deteriorate or shrink.
The custom paint will never fade and it very easy to maintain and keep clean, simply wipe your trophy with a damp cloth. And finally, the cost of making a reproduction is very comparable, and in some cases less expensive than a conventional mount.
The light weight carbon graphite fiberglass blanks are casted from real trophy specimens to ensure a life-like appearance in every detail. It is as close as you can get to what mother nature makes. The first layer of the mold is a white gelcoat that gives the fish its natural look and feel. Our next step in the process is our custom painting and final touches. (A photo of your catch will be helpful to fine tune your trophy replica, but it is not necessary.)
