The Friday Funhouse

Video of the Week
A classic IGFA video featuring a massive Penn Reel in action.

Things I Would Buy If Only I Could Afford Them
This is a strange Bretton 902 French spinning reel.

This Master-Kaster No. 3 Pump Action Reel is a rare bird indeed.

This is a super neat 1914 Shakespeare casting reel.

This is a super cool old Martin Automatic fly reel and box.

This is an absolutely GORGEOUS Julius vom Hofe fly reel.

A nifty Granger fly rod is driving the W&M collectors insane.

The Rhodes Mechanical Frog is on the short list of classic frog baits.

A classic Orvis fly reel is one of the truly great fly reels of all time.

This VERY early Wes Jordan-made Orvis Battenkill was made for gunmaker Eugene Reising.

Of all bamboo fly rod makers, Hiram Hawes is my absolute favorite. As Wes Jordan once said, "I never saw a Hawes rod that wasn't perfect."

A CCBC Special Dace Dingbat is a really rare find.

This 1903 Harris Reel NEVER, EVER comes up for sale.

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