Taxidermist Tom Fitzpatrick is an avid outdoorsman, who loves hunting and fishing. He started fishing at the age of five, and now, more than 45 years later, is still a regular on the rivers and ponds (and occasional surf) of North Carolina!

He began practicing the art of taxidermy in 1992 when he was the owner of a hunting and fishing store in Belews Creek, NC, aptly named "Backwoods Sportsmans Supply". He attended taxidermy classes at the Annual Taxidermy Convention and at Piedmont Community College in Roxboro, NC. He attended the Convention every year for 15 consecutive years! It was there where he not only learned the art of taxidermy, but also perfected his techniques through training and learning from Master and World Champion Taximdermists.

He still attends classes and remains an active attendant at conventions at Surry Community College and throughout the state of North Carolina. As a career woodworker, expert craftsman, and owner of Custom Woodworks Unlimited, Tom has the highest regard for perfection, great customer service, and a keen eye for the smallest details.
