Fish Decoys

Welcome to my new site! I have enhanced my site to allow for more decoy and shorebird pictures. All decoys shown on this site are my personal creations. I continuously update this webpage with new carvings being created in the US and in Germany.

My services include restoration and repair of old decoys. I have experience in many different decoy styles and makers. However, I am a full-time carver and not a full-time repairman. I will need to see the decoy or at the very least view some good pictures of your bird before I can tell you if I am willing to work on it. At that point, I will send you an estimate of the work to be done. I always reserve the right to refuse to do the work. I also can't estimate a price until I actually see the decoy. However, I am always up to a challenge, so do not hesitate to email me about work needed to be done on your fine decoy. Thanks.

Below are photos of a restoration project which I did on an Ira Hudson merganser. Click on the photos to see enlarged images.
