fish taxidermist

Can anyone recommend some that specializes in, or is really good at mounting fish? I would like to have a skin mount done on a nice walleye that I recently caught. I am in Western PA but would be willing to travel or ship if necessary. Possibly someone in Ohio as well?

Garbru, I have seen your work on here and it is excellent. I believe that I also read that you only do so many fish per year and are very selective on what you take in. Do you do Walleye and have any openings?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Re: fish taxidermist

I take in very little fish any more and reserve my limited time for the species I really enjoy. walleye are a species I do not enjoy working on but really love eating them. Either one of the other choices mentioned would be fine ones to have do your fish.
