Gallery of Artistic Taxidermy

Simple, tastful, and elegantly presented, this smallmouth bass mount earned taxidermist Garry Blew of Spokane, Washington, the 1995 North American Champion title among warmwater fish taxidermists. As a pedestal mount, it is meant to be viewed from 360 degrees. The quality of the workmanship, application of paint and color, knowledge of anatomy and taxidermy skill must be of the utmost calibre to win this prestigious award at the National Championships.
