Trout mount ideas and replica guy......?

Caught a nice rainbow and brown trout this weekend - was debating on getting them mounted together or maybe just the rainbow - Any mount ideas or pics out there? Would like to get it on a base to put on fireplace mantle, have a base with some river rock, etc....

Isn't there a guy on here that does replica's?

There are lots of guys that do replicas. Garbru is a world champion and KennyC - among others - molds and makes replicas as well. Here's a link to a few photos:

I can hook you up with a taxidermist that specializes in fish replicas. He does incredible work. Spent nearly 50k with him and I wont ever go anywhere else. I can probably have him work out a special deal for you. Pm me if you want info

Most taxidermist that do fish now do replicas many no longer do skin mounts however. Be sure to look at the replicas - some are better than others and well done replicas rely heavily on a taxidermist that can paint. There are many taxidermists that mold and cast their own replicas and can also paint exceptionally well these taxidermists would be my choice as often their replica blanks(molds) look more natural to me.
