January 5, 2005 -- Wynia Fish Replicas, makers of cutting edge fish reproductions for the sport fishing enthusiast, opened the doors to their new website over the holidays. Their new line of fish replicas: the Wynia Signature Series allows catch-and-release fishing enthusiasts to hang a high quality trophy on the wall and leave the fish in the water for someone else to catch.

In the words of company founder, Louis Wynia:

"I've been involved in the taxidermy industry for over 30 years. We began doing fish replicas 25 years ago and have watched the industry change, constantly looking for the best product available."

However, many of the replicas sold today have changed little from those original replicas. They still are based on the graphite materials introduced 30 years ago and still suffer from the same problems as those originals: thick and unnatural fins, poor scale detail, mouth interiors that bear little resemblence to a real fish's mouth and gills that look more like pipe cleaners than the breathing organs of fish. The end result is that customers end up saying that "They just don't look real".

We couldn't agree more. After many years of frustration, we took matters into our own hands and began experimenting with the materials and advances in chemistry available in 2004, many of which weren't even on the drawing board in 1979. After all, with all of the new acrylics, urethanes, plastics, elastomer composites and the whole range of space age materials, why should we still be making replicas out of the same old stuff?

After many long hours spent in our lab doing research and development, we feel (and we aren't alone in this opinion) that we have come up with a product that is vastly superior to what is currently available on the commercial market. The result is something that up until now has only been available in taxidermy competitions.

We invite you to view our product with a critical eye. When you look into the mouths of our replicas, you will see teeth that are an exact reproduction of the real thing, not points of putty made to look like teeth. Our gills are cast from real gills, not fuzzy polyester strips. Our fins are thin and transparent giving you that natural translucent quality that real fish fins have. Our scale detail is unmatched, right down to the pores in the skin. All of the components are assembled exactly as they were dissassembled to really create something worthy of the title "replica". Our process uses numerous acrylic, elastomer and urethane composites to create a product that we're proud of. We call this product the Wynia Signature Series fish replica.

Wynia Signature Series replicas are available, fully finished and painted, directly from the factory store or have your local taxidermist do the painting and finishing for you. Just ask your taxidermist to use a Wynia Signature Series for your next mount. If your taxidermist isn't currently a wholesaler, they can become one by calling or filling out our form at http://www.wyniafishreplicas.com.
