Bucking Salmon Weathervane

During the past three decades, I have built thousands of weathervanes and shipped them all over the world. I developed this design over the years to be sturdy, trouble free, and guaranteed for life. They are cut from 1/8″ plate steel, about the thickness of two quarters, painted black, and shipped in three parts — the roof mount, direction indicator, and the image on an arrow. When installed, they average 3 feet tall, and the arrow length averages 38-40 inches. They really work, pointing to the direction the wind is coming from, and they do it for years and years with little or no maintenance. I should know. The wind starts here.

The Bucking Salmon weathervane shown above has been my most popular one, by far, but I have made over 150 different patterns of all types that can be incorporated into your weathervane.

I began making weathervanes back in 1980, using a coal forge and an oxy cutting torch to create a weather vane featuring a dog jumping over a crescent moon as its design. It was my first commissioned piece, and it still flies today atop Dick and Jane’s house across from the police station near downtown Ellensburg.
