Friday Funhouse

The Friday Funhouse

Video of the Week

Yawn...Just your average, run of the mill 400 pound catfish...

Things I Would Buy If I Could Afford Them

Talk about rare: this 1880s Orvis catalog doesn't come up very often at all.

An interesting old reel oil bottle marked Frank Hoppe.

Here's an odd but enticing collectable: a Doulton ceramic jug with Izaac Walton on it.

An awesome Zwarg salmon reel will make the owner and high bidder very, very happy.

Ho hum. Just your average$5000 Hardy solid drum fly reel...

Speaking of rare, this Wilson Staggerbug is an awesome and never found lure.

A Heddon Musky Vamp is always a happy find.

Any Heddon Black Sucker of late has gone bat-crazy.

This Arbogast Walleye is one of the neatest of the Tin Liz family.

Chippewas are classic baits, and the market is way up on them of late.

Gotta love this neat Nichols Shrimp!

Really now...a pink Devon has attracted this much attention?

Most people aren't aware that Paul Bunyan sold fly rods, but this is a nifty example of the firm's rod selection.

That is one neat Edgar's Lucky Strike box.

Minnesota-made Johnson Reels have taken an upward turn of late.

I guess I shouldn't have sold my Heddon Pepsi Tad Polly Spook for $35...

A very rare fly rod book: Colorado Classic Cane.

This is nifty Sears J.C. Higgins spincasting reel.

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