Wayne Zespy

Looking for a taxi to do my 29inch 11lber i caught this spring. I see a few of you talk up zespy so i was wondering what he typically charges for a driftwood mount? Has anyone had a rock/driftwood done by him? Please share any photos!

Zespy is the man!!!  You will not be disappointed if you go with him.  He charges around $14 an inch now and total price will depend on what you end up deciding on for a base.  Here is a picture of mine;

Here is another thread I started with more pictures of the 2 fish above.

My 30 inch 13+ pound sheyenne river walleye will cost me around 750 or so if memory serves.  That was at $12 per inch and then doubled due to it being a 360 mount and he'll have to paint both sides and scenery materials.  From what I saw in his shop, he's an artist of the highest caliber and loves his work.  However, he was talking about retiring from the business.  That was last October.  I don't know if he will actually retire or when, but I thought I'd pass that on if you're thinking about waiting to bring your fish in to him.  Congratulations on a nice fish and post pics when you get'er back.

His fish are second to none.  He's a perfectionist who's super busy so it might take a while to get.  He usually has a backlog of a year or more.  But when it comes to the work he's done for me the wait has been worth it every single time.

Just a suggestion, I had 2 fish done at Sportsman Taxidermy in East Grand Forks and his work is also very nice. I am not sure of his rates but  his work would be as good as Zespy's work.  I don't know where you are located but just another opption.

S & S out of Minot is considered a top fish taxidermist. Could consider him as well.
