Welcome, Hotshot!

I'm curious, as you are a taxidermist, do you find some fish more of a challenge to preserve than others? If so, who are the easy fish and who are the "problem children"?

Hey Hotshot,

Great to have you here... I have always wondered about fish taxidermy... maybe you can teach us some stuff here... And if you really want a challenge, check out the microfishing subforum... I would love to see some of those guys immortalized.
