This beautiful creature once swam in our local waters. He is currently residing on the side of a building that once housed a taxidermist. Anglers' that were fortunate enough to land fish like this, had them mounted more often that not. Today, most responsible fishermen practice "catch and release." If he or she wants a remembrance, they simply give the weight and length to the taxidermist, and he provides a facsimile of the original.  So, the fish is still swimming and not hanging on the side of a building. A much better solution for both fish and fisherman!


  1. Those are certainly beautiful fish. I tried catching them once many years ago without success. And I'm with you about catch and release. It's the only way to go!

  2. that's really a nice idea. In my country, it'll be food on our table.
