I am Larry Christy, an Ice Spearing Fish Decoy (FISH) collector, woodworker, photographer and working on becoming a carver.
I started collecting the FISH in 2004 and I have become so enthralled in the craft/art that I have collected 900+ FISH and associated items to the FISH. I started researching my collection, I quickly realized that it is all about the carvers that make the decoys. The more I researched the more I wanted to know.
The website that I do is to help me learn as much as I possibly can about the FISH and the Carvers. I hope to create a website with as much of good information about the carvers - their FISH.
So I hope that you enjoy the site as much as I have in creating it and updating it. Please use the Fish Decoys Net website for research and enjoyment of the
Your comments and information are always welcomed and if possible

Fish Decoys Net is an in-progress website - meaning that as information becomes available it will be posted. This site is for the distribution of knowledge on Ice Spearing Fish Decoy (the “FISH’) for both the carvers, gazers and collectors. It is my hope that this site becomes the site folks use to get them the information that they are seeking about Ice Fish Decoys. I will try to provide good and accurate information.
There is NO intent to profit from this site.
If an item is offered for sale on this site it is to benefit the knowledge of the FISH and no personal gain by me. I may refer you to an organization that is offering items for sale. These are not on my site and I have no control once you leave my site.
I do from time to time offer items that all of the profits
will be donated to a good cause -other than me.
I do not do identifications, evaluations, pricing or personal research for you as I am a collector and many are far wiser in the ways of the FISH than I am. I recommend that you use a professional appraiser of fish decoys and you need to check with your national clubs to see who is qualified to appraise.
