MINNESOTA FISH DECOYS~OLD
Ernie Newman is a well documented, old time fish decoy maker from Minnesota.
Newman decoys are among the most highly prized and examples in excellent
condition are extremely rare. This great little 3 1/4" cheater jig has batwing style
side fins and glass eyes. It is finished with textured foil sides, a white belly and a
black screen painted back. There is also a red stripe along the top of each
side. The decoy has holes on the fins for cheater hooks but is not rigged and
would have been used exclusively for spearing. The batwing side fins as well
as the tail are stainless and were never painted. The condition is excellent and
original with very light wear. It does not look like this decoy was ever used.
