Friday Funhouse

The Friday Funhouse

Video of the Week

The Art of Fly Fishing...or art and fly fishing...take your pick.

Things I Would Buy If I Could Afford Them

An incredible selection of five Chapman Electric lures starts off this week's selections. Unbelievable and museum quality. It would literally take you a lifetime to build a collection like this.

This is a great Fin-Nor Tycoon Gar Wood Jr. Spinning Reel, one of the classiest of its kind.

This Garrison 7 3/4' 209E fly rod reminds us (as if we needed a reminder) why Everett was a master rodmaker.

A Viking Frog in a there a trend here?

There is a great selection of all-time classics up this week, starting with this Chippewa.

This Shakespeare Revolution is another of the all-time best.

This Surface Charmer qualifies as a classic, but it has a hellacious varnish overcoat.

If you haven't been paying attention, Fenwick Feralite rods have been going through the roof of late...

This mechanical spring loaded hook and gaff has the hook heads going crazy.

A Pflueger Nibalo float assortment is a great addition to any bobber collection.

Anytime a J.C. Conroy & Co. reel goes up, I'm all over it.

The Trenton Surface Doodler is the not-so-poor man's version of the Crazy Crawler.

This Falls City Confidence Minnow Bucket is a wonderful and classic example of this style of pail.

This bug swam across the pond--an Allcock Aquatic Spider in original tin.

This FIHE Telecast is one bizarre reel. Or sausage grinder. I can't tell...

This is a neat Orvis fly reel marked Manchester VT.

You don't find these Al Foss lures in cardboard boxes very often...

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