Information gathered here comes from a multitude of sources.
Some information is excerpted from the few reference books available on the Fish Decoy subject.
Much more is received directly from the Fish Carvers themselves or other collectors that provide bio and photo information.
You will find many reference books listed on Fish Decoys Net site at the following address:
eBay sellers are another great source of decoys and carvers and many of the sellers have given their permission for using their information and photos.
Some authors have provided limited or full reprint of their articles.
Several magazines and newspapers and public television, as well as museums have provided permission to reprint articles.
Without the support of the carvers, sellers, collectors, authors and so many more - this site would not be able to provide such an in-depth look at the fish decoys and the carvers of today and yesterday.
Fish Decoys Net is a non-commercial website expanding the knowledge of the fish decoy and the carvers. Hopefully if it is done right, then it will become a great research site for buyers, collectors as well as carvers and historians.
Much of the information on this site is covered by the copyright laws and if you wish info on reprints - I will do my best to get you in contact with the owner of the copyright.
Errors may exist and that is beyond my control as memories fade and history is replaced with new history, but with diligent help from the carving community - this site will be as accurate as possible.
