I own 6 fish mounts, and though each one is special to me, it's not the fish as much as the story behind them that holds meaning. For example, my first mount was a 20-inch brown trout. While that's no great shakes as far as brownies go, it was my first 20-inch trout on a fly rod using a fly I tied. I also have a 200-pound tarpon replica, and although my fiance says such a thing belongs only in a seafood restaurant and not in a residence, I'm fairly certain I'll never catch one that big again. So that 7 1/2-foot fish resides on an 8-foot wall in my house.
