Friday Funhouse

The Friday Funhouse

The Wobbler as art?

Things I Would Buy If Only I Could Afford Them

This Frenchy LaMay musky lure catches both big musky and collectors alike.

Your weekly Haiku:

Heddon Musky lure
Sending out an S.O.S.
Right straight to my heart

Holy rare Penn Model F, Batman!

This Henshall Van Antwerp Black Bass reel is a real humdinger.

A Heddon Baby Lucky 13 advertising model is a nifty piece, and bigger than a cat.

This Chippindale tournament casting reel makes me want to dance naked, almost.

An Evans Eagle Claw is always a great find.

This Heddon 740 Punkinseed in white shore minnow is an awesome piece, especially in the (incorrect) box.

I talked about this lure on the radio with Don Kirk and Brock Ray; sometimes the right color is all the difference, as in this Yellow Shore Minnow (so common in other models) is rare in the Lucky 13.

A Leonard Bi-Metal is a terrific example of a classic reel.

This is a nifty later model Shakespeare Revolution.

A Doug English Bingo Floater in Frog has some Texans going to the mat.

This South Bend Plug Oreno in the box is an awesome combo.

Yeah, this CCBC Pikie in Red/Orange Black Spot is as rare as you think it is.

This H.L. Leonard tournament casting fly rod would be a dream to cast.

A Heddon Tadpolly in the intro box is one of my favorite early 20th century lures.

This is a nifty Chapman bass bait.

Someone want to tell me what this is??? UPDATE: Jason Holiday writes: "Your unknown bait on your things I wish I could have blog spot is a Flashtail from Northern Tackle (Canada)."

The Scooterpooper is a great Carolina lure.

If this isn't one of the neatest Paw Paw Great Injured Minnows I don't know what is.

This CCBC White Scale Dingbat is a fine find.

These three bobbersare beautiful.

That's all for this week! Check back over the weekend for more fun and be good to each other and yourself.
