Friday Funhouse

The Friday Funhouse

Video of the Week

Malaysia...where the fish spit at you. The Archer Fish in action!

Things I Would Buy If I Could Afford Them

Wow! This Shakespeare Musky Minnow has the collector world in a frenzy!

Ho hum. Saw someone post recently about how all Heddon rods weren't very valuable...just like this Deluxe about to hit 4 figures.

One of my rules here at Fishing for History is I try to never post an auction that has a reserve or one that doesn't have a bid on it yet...but screw it. I like this Delaware Bait Assortment from Grube.

You don't see many Danielsson fly reels for sale (don't really look for them but that's moot), and this one is a nice one.

This 1852 patent J.T. Buel is a honey of a bait.

What's that? You say you want 100,000 South Bend reel parts? Well, this auction is just perfect for you!

Pfeffer Brownback...a classic Florida bait.

This Storm Big Mac display board shows a lure doesn't have to be 100 years old to be collectable.

This Penn 706Z is a classic spinning reel.

Everyone loves a Gee Wiz frog...especially when they are red head/white!

You know, I was thinking the other day, we don't get nearly enough on the blog about...collectable thermos bottles???

How about a mystery spinning reel, known only as "DUKAC." Where is Poirot when you need him?

A Jamison Coaxer in the box. My pick as about the most successful lure of its era.

A nice Rochester Quick-a-Part reel is a nifty find.

This 1929 Ed. vom Hofe catalog is a classic.

As always, have a great weekend, and be kind to others--and yourself.
