Taxidermist for Walleye Replica

My friend caught a 32" walleye which he released. He took all the measurements off of it and would like to get a replica made. Can anyone suggest a taxidermist that does walleye replicas that don't look fake?

I used Fiber Tech out of Minnesota and I was very happy with the mount they did for me.   I also had the fish back in less than a month and it was about same price as a real mount.   218-963-8002 is their number.

I'll second Fiber Tech out of Minnesota. Got a replica done last year of a 29" walleye and they did a fantastic job.

Artistic Anglers out of Duluth, Mn.

I have had had a lake trout and an artic grayling done with Matt at Artistic Anglers.  The mounts look great!  I would highly recommend Artistic Anglers.

Three things that are great about a replica mount.

1. The cost is a little higher but about the same a a regular mount.

2.  In 20 years, you can take a damp rag to wipe the dust off and the mount looks like brand new.

3.  Most important....that great fish is still swimming!!!!
