Friday Funhouse

The Video of the Week
Your video of the week is this clever fly fishing video parody.

Things I Would Buy If I Could Only Afford Them
A nice early Kent Frog Floater? Yes, please.

A pair of vintage Phillipson casting rods has attracted a lot of bidder interest.

The Hardy Fortuna is the largest reel Hardy Bros. ever made.

I'm not a creel collector, but this one might make me see the error of my ways...

We've not featured a Shakespeare Rhodes Mechanical Frog in some time. This is about as nice as they come.

This Outing's Getem in the box is a really beautiful combo.

A Heddon Stingaree dealer display is a great find.

A T.H. Bate & Co. New York ball handle reel is a super rare find!

Bronson made some great reels, and this is maybe their best: the Invader.

Your Texas Lure of the Week: the Doug English Super Bingo.

The Millsite Spin Size Daily Double is a pretty tough find, especially in the box.

I would love very much to fish with a Husky Dinger. I think it would be a fabulous lure catcher.

OScar Peterson was an incredibly talented decoy carver. This one is a classic.

The Pflueger Par is an ocean reel easy to overlook.

Storm has caught fire lately, and this Glop Lure is leading the way.

A Heddon Spin Diver in Green Crackleback will always have legions of fans.

The only thing that would make this CCBC Wiggler cooler would be a Toad van Houton lip!

This 1980s Hilberbrandt Salesman's Sample book is a nifty piece of tackle history.

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