The Friday Funhouse

The Video of the Week

This is a nifty vintage bonefishing video courtesy of the IGFA.

12 Things I Would Buy If Only I Could Afford Them

A relatively recent Jim Schaaf fly rod catalog goes to show that even contemporary tackle has collector interest.

This is a really nifty old Abbey & Imbrie reel.

Who wouldn't love this great Thos. J. Conroy ball-handled New York reel?

Arnold Palmer reels in the box are always going to attract the golfing crowd.

Wow, this Heddon Lucky 13 in Blue Scale is awesome!

A George Lawrence creel is a wonderful find.

This Live Action Frog store display has to be one of a kind.

A gorgeous Kent Frog transitional model is amazing.

A Heddon Salesman's Sample Case is also quite rare.

HOLY SCHNIKEYS! This H.L. Leonard salmon reel is a super rare model.

I do like these early Chubb fly rods.

Saltwater lure collectors will like this Stan Gibbs Cast-A-Lure in the box.

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

I try to make sure I balance out lures, reels, and other tackle...some weeks it has more lures, others more reels. It all depends on what catches my eye!
