Friday Funhouse

The Video of the Week
Substitute "fishing rod" for guitar and you can feel this guy's pain. Now gently weep.

Things I Would Buy If I Could Only Afford Them
This Record 3000 is a really, really rare reel. And it comes in a tin can!

This Stan Bogdan fly reel has attracted a HUGE opening bid.

It's not often you find a Mitchell presentation reel!

I love this Ed. vom Hofe Model 504.

Fin Nor made some unbelievably big reels.

This ABU Cardinal 54 is a great spinning reel.

A Phillipson Premium that's never been fished? I'll take two, please.

The Heddon Coast Minnow is one of the coolest saltwater lures ever made.

A Shur Strike Anteater in red scale is going to drive the Creek Chub collectors insane.

This Jim Donaly Jersey Wow is a terrific New Jersey fishing lure.

Meek made some awesome reels, including this No. 3 Kentucky reel.

When's the last time you've seen a South Bend Coast Oreno in the box for sale?

So, you say you're looking for a 1920s hand-crank trolling motor?

Your Heddon Spook Report: a River Runt Spook in Everready Water Wave.

Your Heddon Spook Report, Part 2: A Heddon Lucky 13 in photo finish.

This Hetzel saltwater bone jig means the Jig Age is upon us!

A CCBC Dive Bomber in Victory Finish is a great relic of WWII.

A wooden musky Jitterbug is one of my all-time favorite lures.

Reason #429 to buy every fishing tackle book while you can: Johnny Garland's Bagley Book.

These two old Michigan spearing decoys would make a great display.

A Pflueger Kihoga is an often overlooked big game reel.

A pair of Worth Flutter Fins would make a great addition to a spinning lure collection.

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