Bill and Terry Dishman:
Bill Dishman has been in the taxidermy business for over 25 years. Starting out as a commercial taxidermist, Bill opened Second Nature taxidermy on the Blackfoot river just east of Missoula, MT. In 1993 Bill started Second Nature School of Taxidermy, which has become the number one taxidermy school in the country.
In 2019, Bill and his wife Terry decided to retire from teaching so Bill could pursue his passion for painting fish replicas. “As a fish artist, I see a fish blank as the perfect 3D canvas to express my creative skills and my love for fishing.”
"Our goal isn’t to run a fast moving assembly line of fish replicas, but to produce fewer fish, with the emphasis on quality.”
