Pete Sweitzer over toward Charleston.  217-849-3500

Pete is a fantastic fish taxidermist.  I’m a full time taxidermist myself and Pete does work for some of my own customers.  And I wouldn’t hesitate to have him work on my own personal fish.

Tell him Brice sent you.

I’m trying hard to post a pic of some of his work but it says the file size is too big.  And I can’t figure out how to reduce it.  Call Pete and ask for some examples.

You can price shop as well, but you will not beat the quality you will receive from him.
