Husband and wife team, Fred and Jo Anne Campbell of BenzieJo Decoys create world champion wooden fish decoys from their studio and gallery just south of Benzonia, Michigan. Since 1997 Fred has carved the fish and Jo Anne has carefully painted each of their characteristic markings. The Campbells make over 95 species and subspecies of trout, salmon and pan fish. These object d’art are also working decoys – carved from Michigan basswood, they are tested for balance and swimming ability, waterproofed and realistic enough to trick any finicky fish. Pictured below are their 4 world champion decoys from 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2007.
