The Friday Funhouse

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.

A 1932 Heddon catalog is one of the great ones from the early days of plastic lures.

Goble goble goble.

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