Friday Funhouse

THE Friday Funhouse

Video of the Week

This is one strange fish...

Things I Would Buy If I Could Afford Them

A very nice Orvis Wes Jordan fly rod is both a great fishable rod and a nice collectable to boot.

A competitor of Jordan's was the great Jim Payne, who made this neat rod for Abercrombie & Fitch.

This is a pretty rare little CCBC fly rod bait.

A nice F.C. Woods 3-Hook Expert is always a good find.

A Vaughn's Lure in the box is an overlooked rotary head bait.

This great Victorian vom Hofe reel is a true classic in every sense of the word.

This Heddon 3-35 is a fantastic tournament casting reel.

When was the last time you saw a South Bend Spearing Decoy?

A Pecos River Spinno Minnow is a beautiful lure, especially in the box.

A fine hand-made J.A. Coxe ocean reel doesn't come to market very often.

This is a great South Bend 920F Surface Minnow.

An Eight-Tine Eel Spear is a hand-forged piece of folk art.

This is a classy dealer display for the Heddon Hi Tail.

The in the box is a fantastic find Paul Bunyan Electro Lure .

This Cream City Midget Minnow Bucket from Milwaukee, Wisconsin is a great find for any tin collector.

A Toad van Houton Special will always attract a lot of interest from Creek Chub collectors.

There has been a paucity of scarce metal on eBay of late, but this is a great sign that the winds are changing.

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