The Friday Funhouse

The Video of the Week

If you've got a half hour, this documentary on commercial swordfishermen is really interesting.

12 Things I Would Buy If Only I Could Afford Them

This DAM Quick #25 fly reel is striking.

An amazing Sports Afield magazine from 1915 is a great find.

This is a pretty cool Game Guide salmon plug.

This is a rare 1925 Heddon envelope.

Any Chapman is a good Chapman.

A 7 1/2 Thomas Special is a great fly rod.

This Heddon Hi-Tail Display in original shipping container is superb.

Instant Collection Alert: Monarch Automatic Spring Hooks.

When's the last time you've seen a Great Lakes Imperial 85 in the box?

Can't beat this Zebco First Model black spinner head.

This Heddon #109 is not in the greatest shape but it looks great in that wood box.

Chippewas are the best.

As always, have a good weekend, and be nice to each other, and yourself. -- Dr. Todd

I am a professionally trained historian but have never focused on fishing history, mostly sticking to my niche of the American Civil War.

Nevertheless, fishing lures provide an incredible story it seems and even further are being discussed as a valuable alternative investment.

I would imagine displays like the one you have displayed on this post with original packaging and paper with color intact are quite rare and in demand.

I'll be checking this blog out more because I'd love to get started.
