Friday Funhouse

The Friday Funhouse

Video of the Week

Thanks to Mike Presley, I bring you ice fishing: Brazillian style!

Things I Would Buy If Only I Could Afford Them

Wow! This is one awesome Goldfish Scale Wagtail from CCBC.

It is almost miraculous that a Henzel Booster Bait in the box with papers survived intact.

A half dozen postcards from the House of Hardy will make some ephemera collector VERY happy.

Wow. This Eger Bait Co. Slim Jim in the box has gotten the Florida boys going insane.

The Howe's Vacuum Bait in the metal box is a true classic.

Wow! An uncatalogued CCBC Injured Minnow in an amazing Flourescent Orange Gantron.

Even Winchester flies in the box drive collectors batty.

This awesome Turner Spider in the box is as mean looking a fishing lure as you'll ever find.

A Midget River Runt Spook in Bluegill is a later product, but it is ultra rare.

This German Silver South Bend #1000 has attracted 53 bids already.

This is a pretty nifty Glass Minnow Tube.

Speaking of tough minnow about a Detroit Glass Minnow Tube in the box?

Who doesn't like a Michigan Life Like Minnow? Even if its in rough shape.

I like Paw Paw Wotta Frogs as much as the next guy, and I've a couple dozen. None of them has been as nice as this one.

Your Weird Lure of the Week is the Evans-Case Ecco Jiffy Lure Plug.

This E-Z Way auto striking lure is exceptionally cool.

This Ed. vom Hofe 501 in 6/0 size is an awesome saltwater reel.

This cool Kansas City Min-O-Life minnow bucket may not make its opening bid, but it is still cool.

This Ocean City Coast City saltwater reel in the box shows (again) that OC reels have become, dare I say...collectable?

Your Haiku of the Week:

Signed Louis Rhead Book;
Resplendent in your Lime Green
Reading chair beckons.

How about...a Thermos brand fly fishing themed picnic case?

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