That must have been great to experience. Sorry for misspelling his last name. I’ve seen it spelled both ways in decoy collecting publications and never knew which was correct. I’ve always admired his decoys. They are carved in a style that is very much his own and very recognizable. That always makes a decoy much more collectible to me than those that are more generic in their carving and painting.My Great Uncle was Rube "Uncle Rube" Corliss. I have many fond memories of asking him to tell me the Sea Serpent story as a kid.
