The collection represented on this site and in the "American Fish Decoys" books
by Steven Michaan formed the basis for the first-ever major museum show on fish decoys,
"Beneath the Ice: The Art of the Spearfishing Decoy"
which opened at the Museum of American Folk Art in New York
and toured eight other museums during its two year run.

We think our decoys are unique and significant art objects and experts agree:

"...Fish decoys are the earliest form of American folk art drawn from a utilitarian tradition and consequently are very important in the history of the "Beneath the Ice: The Art of the Spearfishing Decoy" are the most celebrated and documented collection of its kind, having toured nationally for two years. It was one of the most popular presentations in the history of the Museum. "

Museum of American Folk Art

At Fish Decoy.com, our mission is to present the very finest images of the very best decoys ever carved, great pictures of American classics: the decoys and the artists who created them, in the process carving out their own special niche in history.
