Ed Walicki has been professionally carving for over 20 years when he lost his battle to cancer in late 2008. His How To videos found their way into many homes as his carvings did also. His website www.fishcarver.com is still running as of 10/08 and an excellent place to start learning about decoys. It shows a lot of his work on the site. He also created a easy to build Copy Carver or 3d carving duplicator.

remembered for his artwork with the fish.
