We wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the dolphin. Your company really stands behind customer service and satisfaction. When my husband called and told you about the issues with the first order.
You responded quickly with a resolution that made everything right, even though the incorrect measuring of the fish was not your fault. My husband was so disapointed when the first fish arrived. Although it was beautiful, it just wasn't reflective of what we had caught.
Now have been sure to expalin to everyone the mix up, and whata great company you all are by fixing it, regardless os the blame.
Deep sea fishing has become the new obsession with the men of our family. You can be certain that any other trophies we get mounted will be handled through your company. You all have been great and such a pleasure to deal with. These days it's really rare to find a company that stands behind their customer's satisfaction the way you do

Tropic Star Lodge of Panama has been dealing with Gray Taxidermy for over 20-years...
When it comes to quality and commitment to excellence, Gray is a company you can trust to recreate your fishing experience, and the prize that went along with it... Whether it's a giant Black Marlin or a Roosterfish, they strive to achieve the best possible results thru their entire painstaking process...
All of my personal IGFA World Record Fish have been mounted by Gray Taxidermy... My favorites being a 120-pound Pacific Sailfish and 141.5-pound Pacific Sailfish both caught on 4 pound test line, both caught at Tropic Star Lodge... They are viewed everyday at Bass Pro's Outdoor World and the IGFA Headquarters located in Dania Beach, Florida.
My wife Trish's very first Roosterfish was an incredible 70-pounder that was caught at Tropic Star Lodge in Pinas Bay Panama. This incredible catch is truly a work of art to be enjoyed for years to come...

Gray's created a piece of art! To whom it may concern, I just received my 99" Sailfish that I caught off the coast of Cabo San Lucas and I just wanted to write and email saying how satisfied I am with your amazing work!!!! I was not sure what to expect as I waited for the three months due to so many complaints when you "Google" Gray Taxidermy.
It seems that so many people thought your work was too slow and costs were too high with a lot of hidden fees, etc. Now, after receiving my fish, I do not know what all of those complaints are talking about as I feel your pricing was perfect, every piece of information was mailed to me in an appropriate amount of time,
I was forewarned of any additional charges and the work is exquisite. I guess in the taxidermy business it is hard to make everyone happy, but this is an email from one happy customer who will be using your services for the rest of my life!!! Thank you for my beautiful piece of art work that will remind me of that gorgeous day in Mexico for as long as I live.
Best regards, Dr. Lucas F. G
My mount arrived yesterday evening at my front door and it was in GREAT shape! When I opened the box I was VERY pleased and impressed at the exceptional quality of workmanship and attention to detail.The colors look great and it makes a nice addition to our Den and the other mounts I have displayed there. Since I didn't have a camera with me the day I caught it (and that ll never happen again!) my wife wasn't able to see a picture of it, so she had to check on-line to see what a Queen Trigger looks like! She'd never seen a fish with so much color before because they don't have anything like that in her area of Ukraine.
She has as pleased with it as I am,
Thank You again and all the Staff at Gray for an exceptional job and a lasting memory!!! I will certainly relay I had the work done by Gray when guests come to our home in the future and ask, as I know they will.

I just wanted to drop you a note to say that the Sailfish and the Marlins arrived and they are SPECTACULAR. My wife is not a fish lover and allowed them to go up on the wall in our living room because in her words "I didnt know fish could be so beautiful". Thank you for the great work you all did on our prizes.
I just received the Barracuda you did for me. Just wanted to tell you it looks fantastic. Every time I look at it on the wall I will remember the great time our family had on our fishing trip in the Keys.
THE FISH HAS ARRIVED! THANKS FOR THE OUTSTANDING RESULTS ON THE "ROOSTER FISH". ALL THE BEST,
I just have to start this off with saying that Gray has done a fantastic job on this shark. I'm super impressed with the detail. Check her out. It feels good to have her home finally.
You guys rule! Paul
It's hard to believe it's almost 40 years of doing business with my friends at Gray Taxidermy. My first experience was with Hank White, a class gentleman from the start. Hank handled doing business for Gray early on in the Keys. He showed off some of their work and everyone was very impressed and after all these years..... we still remain impressed with Gray's work.
In almost 40 years of doing business with Gray, I've not received one complaint due to poor workmanship or condition in shipping to the customer's house. I feel very comfortable using Gray Taxidermy for all my fish mounts and my customers feel the same.
Thank you. I remain, Capt. "Skip" Bradeen Blue Chip Too Charters Islamorada, FLA Keys
When I opened the crate my jaw dropped! I was amazed at how beautiful it looked, you folks did an excellent job on my golden hammerhead and I would recommend to anybody seeking a trophy mount to use you guys.
Well Done, and Thank you, Bill Turner PS: before the shark arrived my wife said that I should hang it in the garage, but I told her it belonged in the living room, and when it arrived she understood why. She was very impressed!
I have been a charter boat captain for 35 years. Starting in California and the last 25 in Kona Hawaii. Many boats and lots of fish. The one constant in my fishing career is Gray Taxidermy. In Kona my wife and I have more trophy game fish than any one else in our Honokohau Harbor.
Never once has there ever been a complaint on a trophy from Grays by clients. The trophies are world class and
I hope to deal with Gray Taxidermy for many years to come. Customer service is impeccable due to Sandy who has been with Gray as long as I have. Great company! Great people!! Thankyou Gray Taxidermy!!!
Much aloha Captains Robert and Cyndee Hudson
Dear Gray Taxidermy,
I wanted to thank you All for your outstanding Customer Service. This is my 1st trophy fish and 1st experience having professional taxidermy done.
Your entire staff has been incredibly helpful, immediately responsive, and very polite. I have not even received my fish yet but will recommend your professional Company to all the trophy fisherman I meet.
Thank You, Joseph Hodges
I literally got goose bumps looking at this! Great work, Garret! You nailed it!...
Thank you so much, Doug P
I would like to commend Gray's Taxidermy on the fantastic job you did on my 48" Wahoo fish mount. The color and detail of the fish were simply incredible! Taking the fish out of the box and hanging it up on my wall brought back all those wonderful memories of my fishing trip in Maui. Thank you so much for doing such wonderful work.
Sincerely, Rob Laptewicz
I am writing to inform you that the shark was delivered safely and is now on the wall in the restaurant. They like it a lot and said it's well made. They wanted me to thank you on behalf of them, so thank you! We appreciate that you managed to have it delivered so quick!
Wish you all the best,
I just wanted to thank you and the team @ Gray Taxidermy. I received the Dorado and Sailfish last week. They are both magnificent and breathtaking. It was worth the anticipation and the wait.
Thank you so much for the beautiful, lifelike work you've done on my bull dorado caught this spring. This is the third fish replica you've done for me and I can't stop looking at each of them. I enjoy them every day. Calling you to order this dorado next!!!
Top notch! Awesome people and amazing mounts. Used them for a few bass replicas and larger saltwater trophies.
Robert Burns, Ft Lauderdale
Gray Taxidermy has no equal. Been sending them mounts for 15 years and not one complaint. First class all the way!
Sean Kawika Hudson, Capain, Hawaii
I have had a wonderful experience with Gray Taxidermy and I will be getting all my future marine mounts through you! I am more than pleased with your team and appreciate all you have done for me! Happy fishing!!!
I just received my barracuda. GREAT JOB! I had a wonderful experience with this company! I would recommend them to my friends.

Gray Taxidermy has done a great job for many of our customers over the years. Ian, Terry and their team have treated both me and my customers like family. They're not happy until my customer is happy!

I received my trophy today and what a beautiful job you all did with the sailfish. The finish is so real-like that when the light reflects off of it, it looks like the real scales and skin on a fish.
This fish may be the only bill fish that I ever catch and now I have an impressive, lasting remembrance of the occasion. Please pass my thanks to all of your team that created this piece of lasting memory.
Respectfully, Marc Swienton
God has created some beautiful creatures for us to enjoy while here on earth, and Gray Taxidermy has brought that beauty into my home. My Mahi Mahi and sailfish look like they could just swim away. I am so very pleased with them. Thank you so much! I couldn't be happier.
When I opened the box, I was truly blown away with the level of detail, the exact markings and the quality of the overall fish, I have never seen anything mounted that nice, period. Gray’s Taxidermy went above and beyond for my first-ever mounted trophy fish, it is absolutely stunning. I also need to tell you I really appreciate all of the help, planning and logistics that you personally performed in order to make this experience, a great experience. Gray’s Taxidermy is the best in the industry at making memorable moments live forever. Thank you again for all of your hard work.
The entire transaction from the captain of the boat in Jamaica to my house in Manitoba was seamless and flawless. The quality of the mount showcases the high quality workmanship that Gray Taxidermy has become known for, please pass on my compliments to the entire staff. I will definitely recommend your team to my friends and I look forward to working with you again.
Please note that the box was damaged by UPS during transport to Winnipeg. One end was pushed in (from top to bottom) and there was a hole in the bottom. The transport company that brought it from Winnipeg to my town noticed the damage and recorded it on their documents when they picked it up and informed me. I instantly panicked but luckily, the fish was not damaged. I have photos of the box for reference if you should need them.
I just wanted to touch base with you to let you know that we received the mount that we ordered and it looks awesome!! We were very happy with the final product and really appreciate all of your great service. It was a pleasure for us and we are so happy with decided to go ahead and have the mount done. I’ve attached a picture of the mount in our home so that you can see it. I work in customer service and I know how important is to me to get good feedback from clients so I wanted to take the time to let you know how please we were. Thanks again for everything!! All the best for the holidays!
Joe, A few months back, my friend contacted you about some mounts we received from Gray. One of them was sized incorrectly. You and your staff worked diligently to correct the error and make it right. I received the new mount and it looked just like the fish I actually caught. That was a memorable fishing trip for my son’s and I, as well as some other friends.
Thanks to YOU and Gray Taxidermy those memories will be around for others to see and enjoy. I just wanted to send you this note to personally THANK YOU for what you did for us. It was GREATLY appreciated and customer service and satisfaction such as this will ensure that my family and I will use Gray Taxidermy in the future.
I wanted to say thank you for another job well done. My husband was really surprised. I've attached pictures of the fish you have made for us.
Thank you again and I hope to do business with you again soon. Hopefully a blue or black marlin next.
I have attached a photo of Dr. Gary White and his catch!!!! It looks awesome. You did an amazing job! We’re so proud to have it in our physician’s lounge. Please let me know if you have any issues with the photo. I can send in a different program if needed.
I just wanted to say thank you to you and everyone at Gray Taxidermy for assisting me with the replacement of my White Marlin Mount. I received the new mount on Monday and it looks great! It is obvious from the customer support that I received from Gray Taxidermy concerning the original cracked mount that you guys are truly a first class operation. I look forward to ordering another trophy from Gray Taxidermy in the very near future. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
I now got the flying fish added to my sailfish mount. They look alive. Thanks again . Can't wait for my Black Fins and Pilchards to arrive
Dear Gray Taxidermy staff,
My wife and I want to express how very pleased we are with the beautiful mount of her mahi mahi caught on a fishing trip during our honeymoon at Hawk's Cay Resort in the Florida Keys. The form and artwork is a breathtaking respresentation of the bull dolphin she caught.
The mount arrived safe and sound at our northern California mountain home without problem. I've had salmon, steelhead, trout, deer and antelope mounts shipped in years past and can safely say that your crating of her mount was the best I've seen by far. Much obliged!

I just wanted to let you know that I received my fish mount last week and there were no problems. I am really impressed on how well it came out. I will recommend your company to all my friends who want to get a great fish mount made. I hope to be able to do more business with you in the future. Have a good holiday and a happy new year.
All of these mounts represent lasting memories Febuary 28, 2012 I have been using the services of gray taxidermy to recreate some of the most spectacular catches and releases aboard my charter boat sea boots for more than thirty years. Bill gray and ian hall are close personal friends with me and my family. I have the deepest regard for thier professionalism, fairness and honesty.
The quality of thier work is not matched anywhere in the industry. Not unlike many of my customers, in my living room hangs a 468 pound blue marlin caught by my son when he was 18 years of age, a oceanic white tip shark my son and i caught together, a 55 pound dolphin my wife caught on mothers day, and last but not least a 48 pound wahoo caught by my wifes father at 80 years young. All of these mounts represent lasting memories for my family and my customers capt.

I'm not sure if you remember me, my name is Jessica Reynolds & I was down there with my fiance and son last month from Vermont & you gave us a tour of your facility. I just wanted to take a quick second to Thank you for the time you spent with us, for the t-shirts you gave us & for an overall wonderful experience! We were down there for a cruise, and then spent a few days with family down there, and our trip to your building was honestly the highlight of our entire vacation.
Both Jeremy and Dustin are still talking about it often and Dustin wears his shirt ALL the time! lol! He leaves for his big bear hunt & fishing adventure in the morning with his Grandfather & Uncle, & he is so hoping to catch somthing that is worthy of mounting so he can send you the pictures & information! :) He has your business card in his wallet, "just in case..." Anyways, I just wanted to let you know how much we appreciated yout time & knowledge!
May 6, 2012,
Just wanted to drop you a note, expressing our complete satisfaction with the extraordinary job you folks did with my son's 80-lb swordfish. It is truly a work of art!
This afternoon I received the Queen trigger fish you repaired. I just wanted to thank you so much. It truly is better and more colorful than the original as you described. She is back on my wall, hopefully for good. Once again thank you for the good service, fast turn around and professional reproduction. Sincerely, Rob Dippel Chagrin Falls, OHIO
With Gray Taxidermy, you get what you pay for, EXCELLENCE!!
I received my sailfish this week and just wanted to say thanks. I have 65 mounts from 3 countries from my bow hunting travels and learned a long time ago that with taxidermy, you get what you pay for.
Until now, my only fish was a Dorado from Cancun and was my most impressive mount done by Gray Taxidermy 4 years ago. The 100 inch sailfish has far surpassed that and is now the centerpiece of my collection and has a wall all to himself.
Thank you very much.
Jeffrey A. Kelley
We recieved our trophy sailfish and it is beautiful. Your artistry, professionalism, and customer service is world class. I will continue to support you on all of our worldly adventures.

Hi Garret. She's beautiful!!! I really like the colors...I don't see too much green like she had on her back but that was after she was out of the water, so if these are her true colors when she was chasing the bait then I love it and approve it to be shipped!!! Wow, so much prettier than I ever expected. Thank you!!
Sean Kawika Hudson, Capain, Hawaii
To whom it may concern i received my mount (a 52in. Mahi-mahi ) and hung it on my wall. I must say it so life like and looks so well done . I am very pleased all the way around and i will definitely be using your company for all my future taxidermy needs.
My grandson, Josh Hill, caught the hammerhead shark that your company mounted. We would like to commend you for a spectacular great job of work. Mr. Hammerhead looks absolutely fantastic on his family's wall. I now wish I would have sent it to my house for show and tell. Anyone contemplating mounting a fish should have it done at Gray Taxidermy. They will not be disappointed!
Nancy Hill, the proud grandmother.
I want to thank-you for the realistic Atlantic Sailfish reproduction your company preformed for me. I was fishing in the Florida Key's in February 2010 when I caught the 84" Sailfish. We took measurements and took photos before we released it. I'm a very avid fisherman and bow hunter and have numerous mounts of fish and deer.
I have to say that your reproduction shows the Best detail and natural look of all of them. Thank you to you and your quality staff. I enjoyed our conversations on the phone. It also is nice to know that the sailfish I caught is still alive and offering battles to future anglers.
Best regards, Tim Furthofer Avon, Ohio
Recently got our mount back and it's absolutely perfect! Awesome job!
I just wanted to let you know that I am really happy with Chinook (King) mount. I have a lot of guide friends who seen it and everyone is really impressed.
The Tiger mount is both highly detailed and literally beautiful. All who see it are amazed by it. This was my number one bucket list item to catch and Gray Taxidermy far exceeded my vision of what could be done with a fish mount. Every time I see it I remember the experience of catching it with my family and my friend Jeff.
Gray's mounted a our Sailfish for us - couldn't be happier!!!!!
Mark and Susan
Gray Taxidermy is the only company I use for my mounts. Yes the wait may be long but once you get your fish its well worth it. Top quality paint jobs and friendly staff.
I want to Thank Gray Taxidermy for a fantastic job you guys did for me. Joe and Eric dealing with me on the details of pose and painting. Tyler for a brilliant and detailed paint job. Jimmy customer service and tour of your facility.
All the rest of your staff who did there part. I have attached a picture of the Marlin hanging in my office.
One of the goals on my bucket list was to catch a sailfish so Feb. 2015 off Marathon, Fl. I did. You completed that wish with sending me the most beautiful mount we have ever seen.
Iowa farmers, it is rare to see one on someones wall but we sport it with great pride.
It arrived in perfect condition and even the freight truck driver wanted a photo of it to show his friends. This 87" beauty gives me great pleasure every day. You have two new very loyal customers.
Thanks for getting the fish to me on time as promised. I will definetly use you guys again. I did have one issue though you made my sons fish bigger than mine LOL….
Top quality product and beautiful colors. Good communication. Once again, another great mount by Gray Taxidermy.
Austin Parker, Austin TX

Gray taxidermy did an absolutely magnificent job on my Dolphin and Wahoo. Thank you so much for the great work.
