12 Things I Would Buy If Only I Could Afford Them

This is a pretty rare S.W. Ellis & Sons Canadian lure box.

Holy mackerel, is this Mills Pin Back rare!!!

This Phillipson Bass Tamer popular!

Truline surf rods are enormously popular.

This 1951 Grain Belt advertising is by J.F. Kernan, a noted advertising artist.

Musky Vamp? Musky vamp.

This is a pretty rare Carlton Ideal fly reel in the box.

Glow little Glowurm glimmer, glimmer…

Great 1925 Sports Afield, with a wonderful cover.


This Browning Silaflex Magnum is pretty sweet…

A Winchester split shot tin is a nice find.

And finally, for the collector who has everything, a vintage trout-themed aftershave tin.

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

The story and history behind these reels is the culmination of a dream of young men wanting to produce uncompromising quality in their product. I've used Abu Garcia reels since the early days of fishing. I have so many of them, I find myself struggling to choose which ones to fish with. My favorites are now the ones my dad left me.
