Decoys are now collectible antiques

March 1987
Yankee;Mar87, Vol. 51 Issue 3, p92
Fish decoys were originally used as lures in ice fishing. They were usually carved of wood and then painted. Fishermen used them to attract large, sluggish fish so they could spear them. They have been illegal, for the most part, in New England states for some years, but are now popular as collectible antiques.
