The Friday Funhouse

THE Friday Funhouse

Video of the Week

What NOT to do when you land a 400 pound Goliath Grouper.

Things I Would Buy If I Could Afford Them

This Meek Blue Grass Reel #3 is a sweetheart.

In honor of Don Wheeler's new frog book, which should be out in about six weeks, here is a Gee Whiz frog new in the box.

An 1890s era Pflueger minnow is always something to write home about.

Your bait of the week is this neat Abbey & Imbrie Jennings Torpedo in the box.

Fly Rod Punkies are always fun, and this one is in great shape.

Instant Collection: , Smithwick Rogue Lures, 38 of 'em.

Having just finished a chapter in my forthcoming book on M.L. Marshall, I got a kick out of this Marshall trade coin dated 1863. Not surprising, Marshall was a dedicated numismatist.

Clark Experts are always coveted baits.

There have been some great Tycoon Tackle rods up for bid lately, and this 12-ounce HRH is no exception.

The Creek Chub Open Mouth Shiner is a rare bait, especially in this condition and in the box.

This Ottow Zwarg Maximo will bring some serious coin.

This Sport Special is one of the rarest of the Heddon bamboo rods.

Lest you think only bamboo rods are valuable, check out this Phillipson Royal casting rod.

Two J.A. Coxe (Jaleouxe to the uninitiated) saltwater reels will attract a lot of attention.

This Heddon 150 in Bar Perch is a very attractive combo in its original box.

Creel Mania continues with this Wisconsin-made Bernard Kuchta (Crivitz, WI) creel.

This Creek Chub Dinger 6100 in Skunk is trying to fly under the radar.

This Baby 13 in a research box in a wild color is going to be very popular.

Speaking of tough colors, how about a Cobalt Blue Heddon Chugger?

That's it for this week! Have a safe and happy weekend, and be nice to each other, and yourself.
