|About the Artist
Paul DeAngelo started his company in 1978 in the shoreline town of Guilford
Connecticut located on Long Island Sound. His love for hunting and fishing
became evident at a young age with his father Paul "Sonny" DeAngelo who was an avid outdoors man.
Paul eventually left home to pursue a wildlife biology degree at the University of
Wyoming. While there, he became interested in the field of taxidermy. To
perfect his craft, he attended various schools and private classes that were taught
by some of the finest fish taxidermists in the world at that time. He combines
many years of experience and knowledge of his craft to create true lifelike
positioning and coloring that is unique in the taxidermy industry today. These
techniques enable him to mount hundreds of trophy fish each year for sportsmen.
His studio eventually relocated to Upstate New York in the Port Town of Oswego
on Lake Ontario. Upon doing so, years later his studio became the largest
volume fresh water fish taxidermy studio in the entire Northeast.
Paul's love of the great Northwest and Alaska made him decide to move to the
coastal town of Port Angeles, Washington on the Olympic Peninsula
where he resides at the present time and continues his craft.
Inspired by large trophy Alaska Salmon, we live in Alaska every summer providing Fish Taxidermy services to fisherman throughout Alaska.
