The Friday Funhouse

The Friday Funhouse

Video of the Week

Bill Dance is one of the funniest guys around, but there is NOTHING funny about getting hooked in the nose. Except, of course, if it happens to Bill Dance.

Things I Would Buy If I Could Afford Them

This Pflueger Mustang is in a rare Sunfish Scale color.

This 1980s Stan Bogdan 5wt Trout Reel is a modern classic.

Wheeler & McGregor reels do not come down the pike very often at all.

Last week, the Snake. This week, the Walleye. Its a veritable Arbogast-a-palooza!

Instant Collection Alert: 10 Pluggin' Shorties from Texas.

This Salesman's sample case of Heddon Punkinspins/Cousin II lures is a nice find indeed.

An aluminum Shakespeare Revolution is one of the classic lures of all time.

A Buel Kidney Blade with the 1876 patent date on it has metal collectors breaking their piggy banks open.

This is a fairly odd looking vintage minnow bucket.

This early Heddon casting rod is a rare bamboo rod.

An Allcocks Waterwitch is a great example of a classic British bait.

Heddon Crazy Crawlers are popular; Crawlers in Yellow Shore? Belle of the ball.

This Doug English Bingo in Christmas colors is my pick as your Texas lure of the week.

This CCBC Injured Minnow is in a very rare Yellow Spot color, and is new int he box.

This Thoren Minnow Chaser is one of the best of the oddball baits.

Barber Pole baits seem to have disappeared from the radar of late; hopefully this great Reel Lure will remind us how nice these baits are.

Mitchell sold not only reels but spinners, and this dealer display is a great example of these Mepps clones.

As always, be good to each other--and yourself.
