Friday Funhouse

Video of the Week

Fidel Castro…failed baseball player. Megalomaniacal dictator. Professional pain in the ass. And…fisherman? Here Castro defeats Ernest Hemingway and Che Guevera in a fishing competition.

Things I Would Buy If I Could Afford Them

Well, its been a few months since these reproduction frogs caused controversy. This one has a low starting bid of $25,000.

Fly rods don't come any nicer than this Jim Payne Model 206.

Haven't featured many creels, but this Lawrence type creel has attracted a lot of attention.

Here is a nice Welch & Graves minnow tube.

A nifty Shakespeare has already attracted a lot of attention

I don't know anyone who doesn't like a nice Moonlight Pikaroon, especially when they come in the box.

Your Heddon of the week is just your standard Lucky 13 in Yellow Bumblebee.

Fly rod bait collectors are drooling over this Dilg's Own Heddon Wilder-Dilg.

Super neat oddball reel is this Merit Pivoting Reel.

Here is a very rare John McHarg American Spinner box. A very high starting bid for this item may have hurt its overall sale price.

Ted Williams items are always a neat collectable. Here is a nice Ted Williams V Baitcaster.

Early Pflueger baitcasters are always a thing of beauty; This Buckeye NLW Baitcaster is no exception

We here at Fishing for History like the odd and unusual, and this this Oliver Stripper reel from Daytona Beach, FL fits the bill nicely.

This is an excellent example of a Kentucky Blue Grass Horton Meek No. 4 reel.

And although not fishing related, you don't usually run into $2 million eBay auctions.
