Cabin Folk Art: Fish Decoys
You can lead these fish to water, but you may like them better on your fireplace mantel
Published: February 1, 2002
Considered an original American folk art, the first fish decoys were carved thousands of years ago by Native Americans looking for better winter fishing lures. Most of today's decoys are destined for fireplace mantels and coffee tables, where collectors can show off a menagerie of fish, from yellow and electric blue sunfish to chubby, moss-green largemouth bass. Airbrushed or hand-painted, realistic or reminiscent of modernistic art, each fish is a unique handcrafted creation.
