This Fish decoy is made by John Tax, of Osakis, Minnesota.  This is a hard to find Bass pattern style fish.  This fish is pictured in the book "Top of The Line Fishing Collectibles" by Tonelli.   It meaures 6 inches and it is in good condition for a well used honest fish decoy.  It has mostly original paint surface and it does have a very small top of the tail chip repair with paint touch up in that area.
