Friday Funhouse

The Friday Funhouse

Video of the Week

Man, I just hate these videos where people film themselves doing the surfing behind a Great White Shark by using a fishing rod...

Things I Would Buy If Only I Could Afford Them

Remember the Wigart's Glirr we helped to ID in the UNID files? Well, now you can get one of your very own.

It's Arachnophobia, folks: people are going ga-ga over this Turner Spider.

This is one massive Fin Nor reel.

Here's a gorgeous spring loaded trap/hook.

A Heddon Black Sucker is always cause for a celebration.

Your Weekly Lure Poem:

Oh Pflueger Maybug
Years ago you were two bills
Now: at least one large.

Billinghurst, oh Billinghurst. I love you. There, I said it.

This is a very, very pretty creel.

Martin Bradford's Sign of the Angler in Boston was one of the oldest tackle shops in America; here is a classic Bradford of Boston reel that certainly dates from the Civil War.

This King Wiggler in original box is an interesting combo.

A Halik Fly Rod Frog (with the legs) has attracted some intense bidding.

A Heddon Tad Polly intro box is a nifty thing. Maybe Labuznik should have added it to his Super Bowl of Boxes.

Instant Collection Alert: Five VERY scarce South Bend fly rod lure boxes for one bid.

Here's a gorgeous combo: Heddon Jointed Musky Vamp in Allen Stripey and box.

A very, very rare color for a Heddon River Runt: Green Pike Scale.

Falls City floating minnow buckets are nifty pieces.

Gotta love the Sockdolager .

A nice lure from the Enterprise Manufacturing Company archives.

Love this monochrome CCBC Pikie. Life is sweeter in black-and-white.

This Polly Wog by Moonlight has curves that would make Hogarth proud.

As always, have a safe and happy Super Bowl weekend--and be good to each other, and yourself.
