Welcome

Welcome to the world of Gene Bahr's Wildlife Creations! It is our hope that you will gain some insight into the philosophy behind his art. While pictures don't do his work justice, we hope you enjoy the photo gallery of his art.

Welcome to Gene Bahr's "Wildlife Creations" Gallery

Gene began his career in 1976, as a fish taxidermist. He began fish carving in 1984 and is considered a master fish carver among his peers. Inspired by this relatively new art form, he has watched its popularity quickly growing among everyone from sportsmen to art connoisseurs. He eventually stopped his fish taxidermy practice in 2000 to focus more on "Catch and Release" fish carving. He is now 65 years old and has spent his life studying fish anatomy and color. He has an extensive collection of profiles, measurements and photographs of the hundreds of fish that have passed through his studio. This collection allows him to produce beautiful, accurate and long lasting reproductions that increase in value. Visit the Gallery to see a few of his many works of art. We have compiled a selection of images that are beautiful and also depict just some of Gene's scope of work. Whether your interest lies in his award winning woodcarvings, paintings, or other art, we have examples from his actual gallery.


Now you can catch and release the smallest or the biggest fish and still have a trophy that captures and preserves the memory of your catch! You too can own a beautiful and life-like woodcarving of any fish, past or present. Mounted on an oval wood panel, your fish carving will come complete with a brass plate displaying your name, date of catch and information about your fish.
