Swimming Rainbow Trout Whirligig


You may not be able to make it down to the river every day, but we can bring a piece of what keeps you smiling to your yard with our Swimming Rainbow Trout Whirligig! Although it is a never-ending chase, all you need is a gentle breeze to get the Swimming Rainbow Trout moving after his dinner! His pace depends on the strength of the breeze, but as the windmill turns the crank the Trout’s body pivots with its tail whipping behind him. This movement creates the appearance of the Trout doing its best to catch its dinner that it can never reach! The entire piece is hand painted, including a water-toned vane! Some assembly is required and instructions will be provided. A Philips screwdriver and pliers are all that is needed for assembly! The Rainbow Trout Whirligig is almost 2 feet long with the Rainbow Trout alone being 12” (not quite legal size!). It comes with a base that can be affixed from the bottom or the side. Please provide at least 1.5 feet of clearance around the whirligig to ensure it does not hit anything while spinning. Whirligigs were some of the first items my father started making a few years ago and I feel encapsulate the heart of what Four Seasons Handmade Woodcrafts is all about: unique and fun items that will lead to conversation between family and friends! Get our sixth publicly sold Whirligig before this is another one that got away!!

This item was handcrafted by my father, a retiree in Reno, NV, who honed his skills by creating amazing gifts for family and friends during the lockdowns of 2020. Having multiple health issues, paired with a global pandemic, kept him from spending his retirement as he planned. Never being one to sit still he spent his time in his small woodshop creating over 100 bird feeders, bird houses, whirligigs, and custom holiday items, all of which he gifted to family, friends, and neighbors. Seeing the happiness his work brought others, he worked with a local women's shelter and created over 30 handcrafted wood toys, which were donated to bring a smile to the children's faces who were staying. He is now sharing his talent and unique abilities with the world through Four Seasons Handmade Woodcrafts!

The Swimming Rainbow Trout Whirligig is 23”x12”
