Friday Funhouse

The Friday Funhouse

Video of the Week

Ever wondered how to make a rope lure to catch Long Nose Gar? Me neither, but here you go anyway.

Things I Would Buy If Only I Could Afford Them

Here's an H-I reel you don't see every day.

A trade card from H.O. Stanley, the inventor of the Rangeley Spinner? Color me impressed.

This is a cool Shakespeare Revolution with Mickey Mouse props that will bring a goofy look to anyone daffy enough to buy it. Get it? Three Disney puns in one sentence. Well actually, two Disney and one Warner Bros. pun. You get the drift. This stuff is gold, Jerry, pure gold! When you stop chortling, go buy a Blog Book.

A Stan Gibbs saltwater lure in the box in a cool color has the striper maniacs going nuts.

My vote for the ugliest lure you'll ever love: the CCBC Weed Bug.

From the What Are the Odds File: A second H.J. Frost Senate trade minnow (Pflueger) in a wooden slide-top box comes up in two weeks.

A Fenwick Yellow Jacket glass casting rod has attracted great interest.

A Talbot Meteor should be in every reel collector's cabinet.

A 1924 Elto Twin Outboard is an ancient looking motor.

Not liking a Heddon 3000 Spindiver is like disliking ice cream: I wouldn't even know where to begin. I mean, what is it you don't like? The creamy cold goodness? The chocloate chips? Sheesh, you're getting harder to please every week. Now go buy a Blog Book.

A Penn Sea Hawk in the box is a true beauty.

Instant Collection Alert: A whole slough of Heddon Sonics.

A hand carved Bingo Shrimp is indeed a thing of beauty.

A Marvin Mason ice spearing decoy looks like it belongs in a museum.

Another great saltwater bait is this Floyd Roman lure in the box.

Wow! A 1919 Pflueger catalog is both rare and interesting (two things that don't always go hand-in-hand).

Ah! Chippewa. You stole my heart so many years ago, now you come back to mock me. Although I still want you, you're certainly showing your age.

Your weekly fishing lure poem, in haiku form:


Weedless fishing lure;
aren't you called a Cat's Paw?
Or was Luckey wrong?

Four Storm Bug lures, all for one $100+ bid.

Martin Keane's Classic Rods and Rodmakers is like money in the bank.

A huge selection of Edward vom Hofe hooks and a catalog? Holy crimony.

Ah, a frog that would make Don Wheeler proud: a Live Action Mechanical Frog.

Here's a new one for me: the San Luco Injured Minnow from San Diego. Time to ask Dr. Elder...

Here's a great collection of Buck Perry spoonplugs.

As always, have a good and safe weekend, and be good to each other (and yourself).
