So, just say you wanted to get the perfect gift for that special someone on your holiday list. Yea, something that really says you care…a gift that says “you’re really important in my life.”
You know, maybe like a stuffed armadillo swillin’ suds for example.
Where would you find such a masterpiece? I’m glad you asked!!
Roving FishWithJD reporter, Rod VinSteel, just landed in Houston last night and couldn’t help but notice this wonderful piece of Taxidermy Gone Bad…in the airport gift shop, where this little bugger was actually available for purchase!
I’m loving the image if VinSteel with this thing on his lap on the flight back to CA!
If you are even half as big a fan of crappy fish and wildlife mounts as me, check out my collection of bad taxidermy HERE
Okay, so I am not too proud to say that I’ve had a day here and there over the years when a downer steelhead saved my bacon on a tough guide trip. However, I can also honestly say that I have never once considered mounting one (or eating one for that matter). But hey, to each their own right?
I’m not sure what the story here is, but I just thought this mount would make a nice addition to our Taxidermy Gone Bad section.
About all I can say about these skinny guys is: eeeeewwwwwwww! To see more, be sure to click on our Taxidermy Gone Bad section!
So, what do you get when you mix ill-advised genetic meddling and piss-poor taxidermy skills? The hideous Yellow-faced Salmopike, of course, which looks to be a Chinook x Northern Pike hybrid mounted by a 2-year-old hopped up on baby Motrin.
Many thanks to reader Ross Dollarhide, who spotted this dandy and snapped the pic. If you’re like me — a lover of really crappy mounts, be sure to click here to see more fine examples of Taxidermy Gone Bad.
This fine piece of Taxidermy Gone Bad comes to us from field scout and Nor Cal river guide, Tony Sepulveda, who stumbled onto it in an antique furniture store in San Francisco’s Mission District. Sadly, the management was pretty proud of the vile wall hanging and it was out of his price range…but that’s good new for you: It’s still available!
