Kingfisher is famous for our ongoing dedication to mounting your actual fish. Sandy Margret specializes in the old fashioned, slow, labor-intensive, filled- with-love skin mount fish Taxidermy that you are seeking! In an era where skin mounts are becoming impossible to find, Kingfisher is famous for producing skin mounts which include original gills, throat, teeth, and tongue. WE DON'T TAKE SHORTCUTS!! and we don't cut off heads or fins!!
One look at Kingfisher's fish replicas and you will know our fish replicas are unlike any other. Hand painting using brushes along with 20 layers of color bring your replica to life! Amazing Lit Up colors, hand carved fins, open gills, and live action poses separate us from factory produced fish. Avoid your Captain (the middleman) selling taxidermy. Buy your replica from the taxidermist actually making your fish. This is your memory, make it special!
With a Master's degree from NYU, taxidermist and artist Sandy Margret has been capturing your fish's spirit for over 25 years in a Fish Art form called Gyotaku. This is a rubbing of your actual fish, with your name, fish size, date and location of catch. The fish rubbings are quickly gaining in popularity over traditional fish mounts. Why? They are an alternative to Fish Taxidermy and because they hang like elegant paintings they are appropriate in any home or office setting!
