Super cool 10 Folk Art Trout fish decoy carved by John Laska, Winona MN. John is known for his swimming decoys, this one will be the best ever swimmer or for the collector on the shelf. This Sister folk art Trout took 1st place in the 2013.
This decoy is very well carved with great detail and the most wonderful Inuit folk art style paint job. This is one of John's coolest decoys ever made and is an excellent example of his work. Unfortunatly my wife was mad at me one day and threw this decoy accross the room. It was chipped in 2 tail sections. I repaired the decoy and used it spearing several times.
It is signed and dated on the bottom. Laska decoys carved from wood are hard to come by, scarce.
This is one of his more unusual pieces that was hand painted without stencils. Please look at all the pictures for best discription of condition. I sell alot of decoys, if you have any questions please ask. The item "Unique Red & White Folk Art Trout Fish Decoy John Laska Worker Spearing Lure" is in sale since Tuesday, October 29, 2019.
