So...you think that three pound largemouth that jumped out of the water twice was an acrobat? Check out what a Mako Shark can do...it's not only one of the fastest fish in the sea, it is also a contortionist.
This huge Pflueger Musky Jointed Mustang Minnow is a very rare bird indeed.
A Julius vom Hofe trade reel marked for Dame, Stoddard & Kendall is a terrific find.
True 19th century New York reels rarely come to market; this Conroy reel made for Andrew Clerk & Co., predecessors to Abbey & Imbrie, is a beautiful exception.
Here is a new one to me: a South Bend Coffee Mug!
A CCBC Pikie Minnow in Pearl is one you don't see every day!
http://cgi.ebay.com/1939-Art-Deco-Fishing-Trophy-Denzler-White-Sea-Bass_W0QQitemZ160249487905 is a classic piece of Art Deco sculpture.
This left handed Mitchell 301 has attracted a lot of collector interest.
A Heddon Baby Vamp in Allen Stripey is a sweet bait.
Here's a new one to me: a Baldy's saltwater jig.
This Otto Zwarg Model 400 is a rare and highly desirable reel.
It must be the week for musky lures; this great #900 Moonlight Musky Pikaroon is a flat-out beauty.
This Heddon #700 Musky Minnow in green crackleback is incredibly rare, even with paint chips.
This late model Pflueger Supreme CK would make Bob Miller smile.
An early Kent Frog is one of my favorite all-time lures.
That's it for this week! Be good to each other, and yourself.
