About Us


(formerly known as Fish Decoys Net)

Founded 2000 by Larry Christy as a collector, wood worker, and photographer.

Folk Art is what we like in the specialties of hunting, fishing, and the general outdoors.

Our mission statement is
‘Providing as good and as accurate information as memories allow us’

This site was first created in 2001 for the purpose of becoming the go-to source or the DECOYPEDIA™ of fish decoy carving. It is our hope that we meet the accuracy and quantity that is required to be the PEDIA of the decoys. Today, (2017) we are expanding to include bird decoy artist that make bird decoys and sporting artist’s work.

DecoyPedia is an in-progress website – meaning that as information becomes available it is be posted or updated. This site is for the distribution of  knowledge on decoys, both bird and fish decoys, and for the researchers, carvers, gazers and collectors.

It is our hope that you enjoy the site as much as we have creating. Please use the Decoy-Pedia website for research and enjoyment of the craft art.

Your comments and information are always welcomed and, if possible, I will reply.
