Rodney Podd of Milwaukee, Wisconsin has a few years on the knife to his credit. His fish are featured in the book THE HISTORY & COLLECTIBLE FISHING TACKLE of WISCONSIN, by Robert Slade. Rodney’s fish are made as a working / swimming fish. He’s had training as an artist and has carved with the well known Lac du Flambeau carver John Snow. Rodney’s work shows the John Snow influence and some of it reflects the traditional styling of the Lac du Flambeau fish. In other cases his fish are true working folk art and show his own interpretation of a fish species. Rodney’s flawless and detailed paint jobs make his fish stand out. He is a member of the National Fishing Lure Collector’s Club.
