National Fish Decoy Association


Darrin Kvam

Hi, I'm Darrin Kvam.  I have been a spear fisherman now for about 30 years.  I  carved working fish decoys when I was in my teens. I started carving again in 2000.    I have placed in numerous carving competitions, at the local, National and World Championship levels. I also have decoys on two "Gathering" Prints.  Last Spring I placed in the top 10 in the World's Championship points Standings. I enjoy the competitions, and always look forward to making a better decoy.    
         Carving decoys relaxes me at the end of the day. I am a second grade teacher, and coach football, basketball and baseball.  I am happily married to my wife Jennifer, and we have three beautiful children.  I am also a professing Christian, and openly enjoy talking about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He blesses the work of my hands, and I honor him with a fish and cross symbol on the bottom of my decoys. 
     I welcome special orders, and make decoys of all species and sizes.

Remember to run your decoys high, keep your spear on your shoulder, and your
 foot off the rope.
