Default Trout taxidermy

Some fishermen like to send their catches to the taxidermist to get the trout mounts. I don't have a trout mount and I doubt if I want it. Do you send your catch to the taxidermist?

My family usually either does catch-and-release fishing, or we eat what we catch. I couldn't imagine mounting a trout, no matter how big, in my house. I know my husband loves fishing, but that's just too much!

That seems like a waste of good food to me. If I want a souvenir of my catch, I just take a picture. Like I did with my first catch.

I think they need only the skin, head and spine, so you can keep the flesh. But it would take so much trouble from your side. I don't want to waste money sending my catch to the taxidermist.

I am not very fond of taxidermy, mind you I fish and hunt but the last thing I want in my home is something dead. I have a feeling it would freak out the kiddos (and the cat) too much.

I can understand that kids would be afraid of a trout mount, but why would a cat be afraid of it? I kinda think the cat would like it and consider it her food.
