WHAT A FUNNY NAME? IS HE A KNOCK-OFF?
Two River Counterfeits…funny name but a great story. Andy, a dedicated outdoorsman and perfectionist, after years of hunting over decoys that just didn’t measure up, decided he was going to find a way to make the best flocking process known to man. After countless hours of trial and error, field testing, and refining his process, he developed the Flock-LocTM flocking methodology. A true testament to a dedicated perfectionist, avid waterfowl hunter and artist, Andy’s process produces the best flocking you can get your hands on.
But why is his company called Two River Counterfeits if it is a proprietary process? Well, the story gets better and best told by Andy.
“I get a lot of questions about Two River’s Counterfeits. The name is a tribute firstly to the county I call home which is bordered by the two rivers I cut my teeth duck hunting on; The Paumunky River to the south and The Mattaponi River to the north in Virginia. Counterfeits is a tip of my hat to the brothers Ward out of Crisfield, MD. Steve and Lem were barbers in the town during the depression. Haircuts cost 15 cents. Between customers, they would sit and whittle decoys and shorebirds which they called shooting stools and counterfeits, a precursor to the term decoy, or perhaps just a local term. Either way, before long local hunters took notice of their craftsmanship and as the depression was on, wild game was standard fare and a good rig of decoys was the difference between supper and not. They sold their blocks for $1.25-1.50. They sold them as quick as they could make them and before long there was a decoy shop attached to the barber shop with a sign that read: LT WARD AND BRO. WILDFOWL COUNTERFEITERS IN WOOD.”
We love that story and hope you do as well. We know one thing for sure at the Real DeCOY, you will love his flocking.
