Friday Funhouse

The Friday Funhouse

Video of the Week

Nothing beats musky fishing, unless its possibly musky fishing through the ice.

Things I Would Buy If I Could Afford Them

Here is a phenomenal grouping of vintage Illinois casting medals.

You just don't see many Thos. H. Bate reels coming up for sale, probably because they are 125 years or older...

Wouldn'a a nice Vom Hofe rod go beautifully with a matching reel?

Here's a nice big lot of saltwater snells in dealer boxes for the hook fanatic.

Speaking of hooks, they don't come any nicer than this Bartleet Salesman's Sample ca. 1890.

Which would probably go nicely with this set of almost 300 Mustad Salesman Sample cards.

A Bass Oreno in blue head/white is always nice, but especially in the box.

Got a Heddon #100 in Rainbow? Well, then you need the wood box with paper to put it in.

Love the round split shot holders, this Kelso by Frost (NY) is a sweet one.

Old Herman H. Kiffe ran a New York sporting goods store for many years, and branded a lot of tackle, like this saltwater reel.

While his brother Ed was more noted for saltwater reels, Julius vom Hofe made some great reels for big game fishing.

I liked the Schmoo lure long before baseball hall-of-famer Ted Williams brought it to national attention with his famed Upper Deck baseball card ad. Here is a nice example.

Frankly, I know nothing about these two French-made Doperr spinning reels, except that they've attracted tremendous bidding interest and are going to sell for over $1250.00.

Are you crazy for Crazy Crawlers? Then you'd be crazy not to bid on these 102 crawlers...

That's it for today! Have a great weekend and be nice to yourself and others.
