Wanted - Cased Fish - Taxidermy
« on: September 25, 2017, 12:37:11 PM »
If anyone has any cased fish to sell, please drop me a PM. Would be happy to consider whatever you have.
Main interest is trout, salmon and grayling.

Thanks in advance

Hi David,

My dad has a 9.2lb brown trout mounted in a display case.
This was caught during the European brown trout open held at Loch Laggan in 1988 and won him the competition ahead of over 500 other competitors.
Unfortunately he does not have the space for it so could be open to offers. Pm me if interested.
Thanks Alan

Now that's a fish I'd like to see  :z16
I'm sure I remember that event being advertised  :z15

I presume he had the Lada stuffed and mounted on the wall as well?
Ok, I admit it, I quite like this salmon fishing lark....
