Made in Benzonia, Michigan by chainsaw carver and decoy maker Fred Campbell. Fred tests all of his decoys to make sure they are weighted, balanced and swim in a circle. The decoys are then painted by his wife, Jo Anne. They are all hand painted, including the eyes. After they are painted, a waterproof finish is applied.

Fred carves 80 different species of trout and salmon, both service working decoys and decorative working decoys.  The size of the decoys range from 6 inches to 13 inches.

Benziejo Decoys has received several awards, including the GLFDA 2001 World Championship Competition, the 2001 & 2002 Jensen National Fish Decoy Contest and the 2001 Northeast Michigan Sports Show Decoy Competition.
