Woodcarver Mike Butler, who splits his time between Maine and North Carolina, began by making decoys, but his passion for fly fishing (he’s a former guide) made for a natural transition to trout. He creates fish models and catch-and-release trophy carvings—including English-style half-body fish displayed on a wooden board. But his signature works are his beautifully crafted weathervanes. Made using weather-resistant wood-epoxy composite technology, these outdoor works of art are fully functional and one-of-a-kind. He has made trout, salmon, striper, and even codfish to brave the elements. For more information about Mike and his work, click here to visit his website.
