    There should be a little bit trimmed off and available for fly tying, but we limit that. The way the hide is cut off has a lot to do with how much the taxidermist has to trim. Standard cut for example is heel to heel and up the belly. There is a lot of nice hide left dangling from the belly flaps that way. We cut well forward of the vent and then cut each direction down the centerline.

    The nice full hide is now left on the back end of the hide where it makes a neat scallop on each side leaving little to nothing to trim off the belly flap...

    But I will keep you in mind!

    Yeah, I would sure like to think I could be as good as I used to think I was...

    Your signature line brings Twain's great line to mind, "When I was 14 my old man was the dumbest thing that ever drew breath. Looking back on it some years later I realized just how far he had come." I doubt the qulote is exact, but that is how I remember it.

    I really did want to go in with him and help him, if needed, but it sure looked like a good set up for him to get it done alone and I think he liked that a great deal...
