I normally try to pose them in a natural position.This tail was split when I received it, in several spots. I had to repair it during the mounting process. I really am not a fan of posing fish with their mouths wide open and gills flared either, but that is what the customer wanted.
Yeah, I figured it was more natural that way. Actually, if you were to pose a fish in its totally natural position it would be pretty dull. Except for that moment when they leave the water to crash that bait, they lead a pretty ho-hum life. I see why people prefer the former pose.
