Friday Funhouse

The Friday Funhouse

Video of the Week

As it was about 90 degrees and humid today, I wanted something to recall the bone chilling cold of winter. This will do just fine.

Things I Would Buy If I Could Afford Them

Just in time for the 4th of July...a red and white Shakespeare baitcaster.

This Creek Chub Wigglefish is the lure that caught George Perry's world record largemouth bass.

This Fin-Nor Tycoon No. 3 in the box is a great find.

The Great Lakes Whirlaway in a box is a rare find.

This pair of Italian made Crebbia spinning reels has already reached a cool grand apiece.

In honor of Don Wheeler's new frog book, I present this rare Viking Frog in the box.

This late model Leonard Rod Co. bamboo fly rod is a real beauty, with the added bonus of being able to fish with it.

This wood Heddon Punkinseed in rare red scale is a great find.

This Heddon 150 would look great in any display.

For those fools who don't think Heddon rods are worth anything, I present to you the #60 Deluxe.

This Penn 714 spinning reel is extremely popular with Penn collectors.

The Moonlight Pikaroon is one my all-time top ten classic lures.

This 1881 Ducharme & Fletcher catalog has to be one of the rarest tackle catalogs to come to market in years.

The Montague Jupiter is an ultra-rare four-screw Kentucky reel.

Here is a rare L&S Musky Master in green.

We don't profile bobbers nearly enough on this blog; this is a great collection of seven rare ones.

This great Jim Pfeffer frog finish banana lure has Florida collectors in a tizzy.

Here's a Texas lure I've never seen before--the Farmer's Perch Lure.

This 1926 Pennsylvania License Pinback Button is a great piece of piscatoria.

This is an original T.F. Salter 1815 Angler's Guide, an important and really rare fishing book.

The South Bend Teaser is a super rare item and the largest of the Bass-Oreno style family.

Have a safe fourth of July weekend and as always, be good to each other, and yourself.
