Dennis Murawska first contacted me about a link from my site to his. I took a look at his site and was immediately struck by his fish mount gallery. I contacted him immediately about a replica walleye mount. We came to an agreement about the walleye and he kept in touch with me throughout the whole mounting process. I have seen many replica mounts in my day and was leery of the usual characteristics of replicas. Thick, non flexible fins, strange looking scale patterns, wrong coloring, etcetera. Dennis e-mailed me three weeks after my first contact with him and my fish was already done. This was several years ago, expect about a four month wait now. When I pulled the fish out I was dumbfounded. I actually thought to myself that he sent me the wrong walleye because I thought it was a skin mount! The scales were unbelievably real looking, the fins were thin and flexible, the teeth were perfectly placed, gills were like those on a traditional mount, even the “bones” on the top fin were not missing. The paint and highlights were great, and even the driftwood was beautiful. You could not tell it was a replica! My family and friends were very impressed also, my brother was so impressed he had an old rainbow trout mount replicated because of how bad the mount has gotten over the years. Another friend caught a large bass and immediately sent it to Dennis. After seeing my mounts he would have been a fool not to.

” I am very impressed with the overall quality of Angler Art Eyes. Having mounted thousands of fish, I can appreciate the work that went into developing these eyes. They definitely have a place in our operation. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for a high quality, affordable fish eye.”

I have never seen pupil depth like this in a fish eye, unless it was in a
live fish. Coloration is extraordinary as well. I started taxidermy in
1986 and have always believed fish eyes are the most neglected aspect of
the art. I have used these in commercial pan fish and they look great. My
latest show piece is an ice fishing scene. When I molded the scene I left
one eye out of a perch, since they are commonly used as bait. It was
incorporated on a hook in the bucket of fish. This artistic creation
scored 96 in the Masters division, Best of Category reproduction, Van
Dyke’s Most Original and Creative, Starfish Award, Polytranspar award,
Taxidermy Today Excellence award, and McKenzie Best Fish award.
