How to Build Fish Decoys


Fish decoys are often used by those spear fishing, especially in northern lakes during the winter, when ice allows the anglers to hover in an area and wait for a keeper-sized fish to come along. For some the sport is not only in spearing a large northern pike but also in making the fish decoys. These decoys can be quite elaborate, and thus will require a steady hand and someone who has the ability to develop a certain artistic flair. Previous woodworking experience might not be necessary but is certainly helpful.
