David, Polly and Julie Footer: The First Family of Fish Ingrid Sils Photographs by Paul Schmookler

 David Footer of Lewiston, Maine, is an accomplished
artist and master taxidermist whose knowledge of fish, 
and brook trout in particular, is the culmination of nearly 
50 years of study and observation. His highly successful 
taxidermy business, however, is a family affair.  Meet one 
of the most down-to-earth, pleasant, close-knit families for
whom the love of fish has transformed itself into highly 
successful business, and learn what happens to that trophy
fish from the time it is dropped off at the Footer's until the
time it arrives on your doorstep.
