Friday Funhouse

The Friday Funhouse

Video of the Week

The shortest video ever posted on Fishing for History just may be the funniest.

Things I Would Buy If I Could Afford Them

This is a phenomenal 1903 Heddon Underwater minnow.

Mitchell half-bails are always very popular.

in this kind of shape simply don't come up very often.
Heddon spearing decoys.

This reel, attributed to Fritz Vom Hofe, is a true classic.

Wow. An early Creek Chub pikie in an intro box may break four figures!

A Leonard Bi-Metal fly reel is always nice, but I particularly liked the artistic auction photo.

A group of 80 Heddon Lures that came off a dealer display board would make an awesome start to a Heddon collection.

This Chapman doesn't come down the pike every day!

Who knew that the Smithwick Gandy Dancer was this coveted?

Tycoon Tackle made some awesome saltwater rods, just the thing to go with your Fin-Nor reel.

This Shakespeare Frog Skin bait is one of the neatest of the frog covered lures.

Marble's fish gaffs are always coveted items.

The Johnson Pink Princess is always a popular collectable.

This is a beautiful Heddon Punkinseed in Goldfish Shore Minnow with, unfortunately, some blemishes.

Canadian collectors are flocking to this Hex Wheelrite in the box.

The South Bend Frog-Oreno is usually found in worn condition, but this one is a true beauty.

A Weller Classic Minnow in the box is a nice addition to a misc. collection.

This Swedish Leidersdorf, Stockholm metal spoon will make a nice addition to any metal collection.

I enjoy Joe Pepper metal, and this New Century Potomac spinner is a great one.

The Shakespeare Beetzsel is a coveted baitcaster.

This James Victorian Needle Works marked fish hook is a very desirable British hook.
