12 Things I Would Buy If Only I Could Afford Them

This early, early rubber frog is unbelievable.

This is a superb Montague Varney fly rod.

This is a cool Tom Mann Eagle Claw spinning reel.

This Hardy brass Perfect is a wonderful find.

This #3 Milam & Son is in great shape.

A beautiful Shakespeare 5-Hooker is an outstanding lure.

This South Bend Musky lure is also an incredible bait.

Fred E. Thomas is my favorite all-time rodmaker. Here's why.

This Kent Floater in the box is superb.

ABU Cardinal 3s are superb reels.

You really don't see these Wright & McGill flapper crabs in the box very often.

A 1957 Salesman's Sample from Heddon would be a great centerpiece for any collector.

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

The "Heddon" Musky lure is of course a South Bend Musky lure not Heddon.
