Trophy Fish Fiberglass Replicas

  • Angling Artisan, NY -Rich Benedict Jr. is the ONE AND ONLY guy I recommend. He does phenomenal work, end of story. I haven't seen ANYONE producing anything close to the realism Rich acheives and the pricing is extremely competitive too. Rich has done three replicas for me; a replica of a Paradise Springs Wild Brook Trout (currently resides in WI) and 2 steelhead for my office. First, a Chrome Hen caught on Oak Creek with the 8wt. Bamboo Rod by Ron Caimi and myself. 2nd, my first steelhead ever landed on a centerpin in 12 Mile Creek, PA, but painted with the color scheme of a fish caught earlier on that trip in Elk Creek, PA (so it's an "amalgamation" of the 40+ steelhead I caught on that trip).

    Check 'em out, and once you're drooling give Rich a call and tell him I sent ya!

    Here's the actual steelhead these fish were fashioned after, you can judge Rich's work for yourself!:
