    Only if your using crappy blanks. A good blank will look far nicer then a skin mount. On 90% of the skin mounts i do the only thing not cast is the skin.

    This is simply inaccurate. Ryan's (Lakeshore Wildlife Studio) replica fish are incredible. The only reason to go with a skin mount would be to have an actual piece (skin) of the fish on the mount.

    With a replica, you need to take really good photos. Make sure you take several photos showing good detail on the side you want displayed for your mount and good measurements...length, girth at a few spots, etc.
