Friday Funhouse

Video of the Week

In honor of the upcoming Winter Olympics, I present my sister's nephew Chris Plys from my hometown of Duluth, MN, a member of the U.S. Olympic Curling Team who was featured recently in this piece with Stephen Colbert on the great Colbert Report TV show.

Things I Would Buy If I Could Only Afford Them
You don't see these South Bend Strong-Oreno spools very often.

Holy Moly is this an AWESOME K&K Picture Box!!

This is a great S.W. Evans & Sons Eagle Claw.

This 7.5' Payne is a pretty exciting rod.

This Creek Chub Beetle in an uncatalogued color is a dream for the CCBC collector.

This is a gorgeous Pflueger 6/0 Atlapac.

Instant Collection Alert: A set of five nice Punkinseeds.

This Heddon 150 in Green Crackleback is a terrific bait.

These Joe Coxe L.A. saltwater reels are some of the nicest big game models ever made.

No one made more popular decoys than Oscar Peterson.

Wow. This Oliver & Gruber Glowwurm has reached astronomical prices.

I love mortised Thomas Chubb rods.

Who doesn't like a Toad van Houten lip?

My brother swears the Al Foss #3-25 is the greatest tournament casting reel ever.

A Pflueger Palomine in Scramble Finish is a work of art.

The Red & White Luny Frog (closed legs) is pretty much the holy grail of Luny Frogs.

I like these Everol reels a lot.

Wow. This is one of the great trade minnows ever.

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