Marc Charles of Second Nature Taxidermy has had his hands in the art world for many years. His knowledge of fish and their subtle characteristics have propelled him to emerge as one of the top "FISH" taxidermists in the U.S. today.

Marc has been the featured speaker at various outdoor events, sport shows and fishing banquets as both an accomplished fisherman as well as a quality fish taxidermist. His experience on the water has helped him accurately replicate the natural poses and colorations in his completed work..

Established in 1979, SECOND NATURE has devoted nearly 30 years to specializing in fish taxidermy only. Clients include, not only the everyday angler but many well known captains, guides and outdoor personalities throughout the midwest.

"John Nemec jr."says... I look at things a little differently than probably the average guy does. Attention to detail is what I'm all about. It is what I attribute my success to and I expect nothing less from my taxidermist. I searched for a taxidermist that would meet my high standards for quite some time before I came across Marc, but I knew instantly my search was over. I have spent more time admiring my trophies than I care to admit, not because of their size, but because of the quality of Marc's work. I don't just consider him a great taxidermist, but a fellow artist, who like me strides for something neither of us will ever obtain, perfection.
