Not all fish are colored the same and every fish looses their color during the mounting process. Different color waters greatly affect the shades of color on each fish. Taking a picture of the fish when it's caught will give me an excellent reference to recreate the colors, giving you an excellent finished mount.

Most Freshwater & Some Saltwater Fish can be mounted using the Real Fish. You get to keep the actual fish you caught, including the bait used to catch it. Yes, I'm talking about preserving the Live Bait and adding it to your display.
