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.
