Driftwood Taxidermy
Taxidermy simple question? Please Read.?

This is probably a very silly question …. I bought a 30 "taxidermy skin after a pike on eBay that I caught a 29 1 / 2 "fish in my camping trip to Saranac Lake. At the auction, said the driftwood was not included because it would be too heavy ship. The fish came with what looked like points and two 1 / 4 inch metal rods protruding from its side. How the hell am I supposed to mount this on the wall? Do I have to buy a piece of wood in order to show it? And another thing … I said at the nearby house taxidermist to skin mounts of fish tend to putrefaction, decay and should be re-done every five years. I keep this from happening. Does anyone have any other suggestions to show the fish in a glass case? If I had known, I have gotten a replica mount … Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Yes, the skin mounts have a tendency to decline. Although I have one that has been around for 20 + years and remains fairly well. You can put several coats of varnish or a clear polyurethane to protect it and make it last longer. Other than that I really have no suggestions
