Fish Replicas

8 posts in this topic

Just was wondering if any of you could recommend a good place to get a good fish replica of a fish a buddy of mine caught and released this past weekend. It was a very nice 9lb 5 oz 30 inch walleye. We wanted to release it so we got pictures took the measurements and back in the lake she when. If any of you have any experience good or bad with any it is appreciated. If you know of any in the Fargo Moorhead area that would even be better. If you could get up the name that would be great if possible the phone number or e-mail would be nice. Thanks in advance.

Tom Halverson, Halverson Taxidermy in Fargo mounted a deer head for me. He was working on a fish replica when I was there once. Call him @ 701-235-5275. He does nice work and very nice guy.

A few years back I read an article about a guy in the Duluth area that makes replicas. Sounds like he does nice work and that he garauntees them for life and will repair them even if they fall off the wall and break a fin-I still haven't caught a worthy fish to call him but I bet you could find him by asking around in the Duluth forums or yellow pages. Congrats on the CPR!-catch, photo, replicate. Tight lines

I have used both Artistic Angler and Fibertech and both did great jobs. I recommend them both also. Scott Steil

FiberTech near Brainerd. They do a real nice job and the price is pretty reasonable.

Good Fishin, Matt.

Has anyone ever heard of Permatropy out of Pembina, ND? Also, how long does it take to get your replica back?

Thanks!

Call Artistic Anglers. I have not seen work better than theirs. Better yet go to the large Minneapolis Sports show at the MPls. convention Center in late March early April. Artisitc Anglers always has a both with a large dispay of their work and they usually run a show special that is $2/inch less.
