Watch the Bluefin Rodeo from Nova Scotia, ca. 1953 and see some big Bluefins, and some awesomely large reels!
Things I Would Buy if Only I Could Afford Them
This is an exceptionally rare Fred Rhodes Casting Minnow.
Heddon Closed Leg Luny Frogs are rare, but especially in red-and-white. Plus, I think he's looking at you…
What would New Year's Eve be without Champagne?
Winston were known for their great rods; this reel is a beauty, though.
A Heddon River Runt Spook in Waterwave? Oh my, and in the correct box!
Speaking of rare River Runt Spooks, check out this XBY variant.
A Phillipson Paragon is a paragon of fly rods.
This strange spinner known as the Walton Speed Bait is always popular.
A Vom Hofe 621 in the box is always a great find.
Hurd Super Casters have a lot of fans, and this one in original shipping carton is a wonderful find.
Billy Pate made some great big game reels.
I like this Meisselbach Tripart #581.
I like this CCBC Fly Rod Dingbat in the box.
This Open Mouth Shiner is a terrific bait in the intro box.
This is a really cool old "Lighter Than Cork" fly rod minnow in the box…anyone know anything about this?
Well, that's it for 2010! Thanks to the 10,000+ individual readers who stop by every week for allowing me to indulge in my passion. Have a great and safe New Year's Eve and a prosperous and healthy 2011. And above all else, please be good to each other, and yourself, in all of your days.
