Friday Funhouse

The Video of the Week
This is an AWESOME (if very long) Brown Trout video.

Things I Would Buy If I Could Only Afford Them
This is a beautiful Payne fly rod...oh yes, it also happened to be owned by Zane Grey. Let the bidding commence.

This Winchester 9611 Fluted Spinner proves that in tough economic times, Winchester tackle is like gold in the bank.

The title of this auction says it all: KOSMIC REEL!

This is an awfully nice H.L. Leonard fly rod with tube.

A box of trout flies from the Lucky Bug Shop in Butte, Montana is a happy find for any fly angler.

If the Pflueger Hawkeye isn't one of the greatest American fly reels of the 20th century...

This Shapleigh Reel Oil bottle has to be a tough one for the collector to find.

A Shakespeare Rhodes box from ca. 1906 will turn a nice lure into an incredible combo.

Holy Punkinseeds, Batman! This one's got the Punk Heads going crazy.

We love creels here on the blog, and boy does this one ever have eye appeal.

This Meek No. 4 is an amazing Kentucky reel.

A George Gayle No. 3 is also an incredible find. Good week for the Kentucky Reel collectors!

A slim body Heddon 150 in the box in my favorite color--Green Crackleback--is a wonderful find.

The Myers & Spellman is a very, very rare lure.

3 Pflueger Pal-O-Mines in Scramble? Yes, please.

Johnny Horton was a very popular singer, and made some nifty lures too.

The Johnson Pink Princess is always popular.

This is a really, really rare Heddon trade rod made for Sloan's Sporting Goods Co.

Reason #491 to buy every book on tackle available: Oregon Bamboo by Joseph Beelart.

This is a huge CCBC Pikie Minnow in Goldfish Scale.

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