Rainbow Trout Mounts by New Wave Taxidermy
Rainbow trout are native to the cold-water streams, rivers, and lakes west of the Rocky Mountains. They easily adapt to a variety of aquatic environments, however, and can even survive in salt water. For this reason, and the fact that they are a hugely popular game fish, Rainbow trout have been introduced to every continent on Earth except Antarctica.
They get their name from the rainbow sheen that appears on their skin and they make an amazing wall mount. Don’t take our word for it though, that’s what we do we make amazing wall mounts… of all sorts of fish!
Each and every fish replica that leaves our shop is completely hand-crafted to our client’s photos and specifications. Our goal is to create a replica of the fish that was actually caught, a trophy that will look amazing on the wall for a lifetime.
All of our fish mounts are incredibly lifelike, one of a kind, and come with a certificate of authenticity signed by the artist.
We’re believers in the old adage ‘you get what you pay for’, all of our mounts are of the highest quality. We’ve been creating trophy mounts of beautiful fish caught all over the globe for more than 40 years.
At New Wave Taxidermy we truly love what we do and we feel that makes a real difference in the quality of work that we produce. Please take a moment to browse the gallery below and complete the form for your free cost estimate.
