Friday Funhouse

The Video of the Week

Things I Would Buy If I Could Only Afford Them
Here's one you don't see very often: a Makinen Tackle Co. spinner on the card.

3 boxes of the Fishing Fish Spoon--the only spoon that was never used (as far as I can tell) by an angler. Seriously, these show up new in the box so often one wonders if they were ever actually sold.

This is a flat out awesome E. vom Hofe salmon reel.

How about a nice Tycoon Tackle Craig Special saltwater rod?

This nifty Shakespeare Worden Bucktail spinner is a classic early 20th century lure.

A tip to investors: vintage glass rods are going to be the next big thing.

This is a great graphic card for the Pflueger Frog Harness.

This is a super sweet Perez saltwater reel.

This Heddon Artistic Minnow comes with the buoy, which is pretty rare.

This is a great Otto Zwarg 400 3/0 salmon reel.

I don't know much about this Florida Lure Mftg. Co. bait of Eustis, FL, but it has attracted a lot of bidder attention.

75 issues of early Fishing News and Fishing Facts & Secrets has received a whomping opening bid.

Gene Edwards is a very hot rodmaker to collect and fish these days, and this is a nice model.

I do like this Shakespeare Musky Minnow ever so much.

I love Coach Dog paint jobs, especially on a Heddon "00."

I'm still trying to figure out the deal on this Armax skeleton fly reel...

The Follett is one of the iconic vintage fly reels and doesn't come up for sale very often at all.

The Meek Blue Grass No. 3 is a classic high end casting reel.

A Heddon Crazy Crawler in Luminous is a super tough color.

How about a Streich's Acro-Bait in the box?

You're not going to find a cleaner Paw Paw Caster Bait than this one.

This L&S Muskie Master with the red eye is a classic early plastic bait from this company.

A Bomber Kreeker in WWII Victory Finish is a great piece of war memorabilia, and a neat lure to boot.

The classic UMCO 1000A is the standard for these aluminum tackle boxes.

A Jim Pfeffer bait is always a popular lure.

A vintage Hollowhead is a surprisingly tough little lure to find.

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