Yeah it's not cheap to get fish taxidermy done. Cause of the time they have to spend on it. With what My taxidermist charged on my walleye when I picked it up he told me with his time and material he makes like no money and might stop doing fish for awhile cause the deer are where his money is made. But he loves doing fish. But he is back logged so bad he had to do an extremely limited amount of new deer coming in. In Hope's of catching back up.Just wish I could find someone that wouldn't charge an arm and a leg to replicate it.
