Hang EM High taxidermy did it my pike. His name is Kyle McCarthy and he does it on the side. Normal rate is $10




His number is 719-243-0040. I have seen quite a bit of his work and its great IMO.

Tell him Kurtis sent ya if you talk to him.

Last year I had a brookie mounted by Tanglewood. Rudy is nice guy, but I would not take another fish to him. The fish was several months late and all of the bottom fins had been clipped and look uniform. The fish looks good, but the fins being clipped definitely makes this big brookie look unnatural and was not how it was given to him. My kid caught it and was very happy, so I didn't want to spoil his moment or have him look at this trophy brookie and think about the fins. If I get a chance I will try and post a picture.

Also I wanted to let everyone know that Kim Evans of EchoHawk did an excellent job on the big game mounts that I have given to him. I would not hesitate to recommend him for big game. No experience with him though on fish.

My two cents - Tim

I talked to Rudy last year and I guess the fish guy he has now is not the same one he had years ago ( late 90's, which was the last one I had done). But that's too bad the brookie didn't come out the way you wanted. Yea I would love to see a pic of that brookie!
