    Well, I'll have to talk to a buddy of mine when he gets back from CO. His taxi does some nice work. Not sure what she does on replicas though. But I'd sure be doing a replica. Did you keep the fish?? Or did you just get good pics and measurements?? Those colors look awesome. I'd hate to see someone lessen the beauty of that thing.

    I'll talk to a couple of people down at Bennett when I get back down there this weekend or the next. Either way I'll see what I can come up with. Also, check with the guy on here from Timberland Taxidermy. Even if he doesn't do them, he should be able to recommend someone in his network.

    Also, I'll talk to the guys at our fly shops on Manchester in STL to get their opinions. I'm sure they probably have a good taxi lined up.

    Thanks NL, I've looked a bit online, but haven't contacted anyone yet. Got some pics and brief measurements, with emphasis on getting the brute back in the water quickly.

    We fished with spoons, jigs and nightcrawlers. The brown hit a nightcrawler.

    Charlie at Readings fly shop at Bennett recommended this guy GG. I've seen some of his work. Pretty good stuff.

    Thanks NL. I had his place narrowed down to one of five places to contact. Looks like his stock just went up a bit. :tup:
