VIDEO OF THE WEEK:
That isn't what she thinks it is...
THINGS I WOULD BUY IF ONLY I COULD AFFORD THEM
One of the neatest pieces to come to market in recent memory is this 1930s Horrocks-Ibbotson factory worker badge.
This is a truly rare Hardy Houghton fly reel.
Stan Bogdan was a true master, and this is a beautiful example of his reelsmithing. By the way, you should run (not walk) and get a copy of Graydon Hilyard's bio of him if you don't already have a copy.
This Heddon #150 Dowagiac Minnow comes in the box with papers. Nice find!
A Keeling in a picture box? Who wouldn't want that?
For those into metal, this McHarg spinner is a true classic.
A Pflueger Minnow in "shark tooth" black and red is one of my favorite lures.
You say banana, I say yes please. Jim Pfeffer, anyway.
This Creek Chub Goldfish scale kingfisher pikie minnow is a great find.
An original Fred Young Big-O is a nice find and indicative of a growing arena of collecting: classic bass lures.
A Heddon No-Snag River Runt in goldfish is a rare bait.
From the great state of Texas comes this nifty Nichols Shrimp.
I'm not usually a fan of Leonard Duracane rods, but this one is a nice example.
The Vance Waters salmon plug in a picture box is a nifty package.
Dam Quick made some neat reels. My dad used a 441N when I was a kid and liked it.
Great Bagley! This B-Flat 2 in largemouth bass would be a killer bass plug.
This Doc's Menhaden in the box will set the state of Florida ablaze with bidding.
As always, have a great weekend, and be good to each other, and yourself.
