12 Things I Would Buy If Only I Could Afford Them
A nice Barton, Alexander & Waller 1880s New York ball handled reel starts out the Funhouse in style.
A Creek Chub Deluxe Wag Tail Chub in the box is amazing.
This 1902 Pardee Minnow is an amazing thing.
Seamaster Spinning reels are super popular.
A color like Goldfish is great on any lure, but especially on Injured Minnows.
My favorite reel is this Heddon-made Al Foss "Easy Control" baitcaster.
Despite what Finn Featherfurd might say, I like these Winchester underwater minnows.
The Heddon Dowagiac Torpedo in orange coach dog is gorgeous.
This Shakespeare Bass Bug is poised to break some records for this kind of lure.
A hollow metal Radford spring lure is a superb bait.

Goble goble goble.
As always, have a safe weekend, and be good to each other, and yourself.
