This is the oldest mount I've restored. Billed as the largest Brook Trout caught on a fly in the world and was displayed at the Worlds Fair in 1898. Caught in Rangeley, ME. It had been restored by someone unknown who really went heavy on resin and thick finish.

I totally stripped the paint, then repainted with a minimum of paint and finish. I replaced all fins. Lastly I refurbished the background painting. It was a painted on a veneer which was separating from the main backing board.
