The Friday Funhouse

The Friday Funhouse

Video of the Week

While technically not fishing-related, this is still one of the most amazing videos of the year: we call this The Great Escape. And it is ORCA related!

Things I Would Buy If Only I Could Afford Them

This neat 1959 South Bend "Skish" Casting game in the box is a neat piece of fishing history.

Anyone else a little surprised by this one?

A 12/0 EVH Commander Ross is always a superb find.

So is a Talbot No. 31.

This Colorado-made Turtle creel is a pretty thing indeed.

A Blue Grass Meek would look just splendid in almost any den.

Saltwater lures get little respect, which is why it is nice to see this boxed Emmerson & Ruhr get some serious attention.

A Paul H. Young kit rod is a neat piece.

So is a Gene Edwards quadrate rod.

Instant Collection Alert: 7 Heddon Punkinseeds for one bid.

This is a nifty South Bend advertising point-of-purchase sign.

An Edgar's Lucky Strike Submarine in the box has Canadian collectors dancing a jig.

These Champion Featherweight handles are in a world of their own.

They don't get much older than this brass winch.

Finally, nothing beats a good old pier fishing sign.

As always, have a safe and happy first weekend of 2009, and be good to each other and yourself.
