Old skin mount taxidermy sailfish are rare. This fish is in fabulous condition, caught in New England in 1944. The older skin mount fish are usually mounted with a straight back, rather than a curved back, which became popular in the 1970's. The fish evokes Ernest Hemmingway, Lucille Ball, and all of the icons of that fabulous decade.
