I can't tell you who to go to and my thoughts about this are obviously too late to help in this instance, but...
I have never seen a mounted/stuffed fish or other stuffed animal that did justice to the actual live animal. My suggestion is to, at least in the future, take LOTS of pictures! Especially pictures that document the actual size and beauty of the catch. I have seen many more pictorial histories that impressed me than ANY mounted fish no matter who did the work.
Just my $0.02, save your money and save your memories on film or digitally with great care. Then, yes, let the quarry go. In my mind, the reward and bragging rights don't depend on having the fish stuffed, but in documenting the catch.
Oh, well, as I said, just my $0.02... (smile)
Good luck and good fishin'
