12 Things I Would buy if only I could afford them
This Wards Hawthorne / Bronson Invader is breaking all kinds of records.
I love these obscure saltwater reels!
We haven't seen a nice Chippewa around here in some time!
Instant Collection Alert: CCBC Beetle infestation.
This is one nice South Bend lure and box combo!
Another Christmas Doug English lure, but this one is signed by the luremaker himself!
Orvis glass rods are picking up steam.
I don't know who John Pususta is, but you can be damn certain I won't forget the name after seeing this beauty!
I have always enjoyed this rare Heddon River Runt spook color, but it's particularly hard to find in No Snag.
Love these Dingley fly reels!
Winchester rods don't quite attract the rabid interest of their reels, but this is one nice casting stick.
A Neal spinner in the box from Indiana is a superb find.
As always, have a great and a safe weekend, and be good to each other, and yourself.
