Ah, the Duluth of my youth...nothing like the Minnow Swallowing Contest from a West Duluth bar.
Things I Would Buy If Only I Could Afford Them
This Goldfish CCBC Wagtail is a true beauty.
This Payne 206 is a classy wand.
A Fin-Nor 9/0 will run like a Swiss Watch.
Anyone for some Nep-Tuna cradles?
Turner Baits are difficult to find, especially in boxes.
This is one strange threadline spinning reel.
Fred Malleson reels are super, super hard to find.
A Heddon Magnum Torpedo in Golden Black Musky? Wow.
This Zaragossa is the definition of a classic bait.
This is one sweet W.J. Cummins 1895 catalog.
A Heddon Heritage with all the fixings is a nice find.
The high forehead on this Heddon 100 in Aluminum makes this a very, very rare bait.
A Turtle brand creel is a classic.
You don't see Pflueger O'Boys get this much interest very often...
This is a very, very wicked looking gaff!
A Four Brothers Neverfail in the box will make any Pflueger collector's day.
A McHarg diamond spinner is a perfect piece of "fancy metal."
As always, have a great weekend, and be good to each other and yourself.
