It's that time again -- Lang's Week! As always, in lieu of the Friday Funhouse (which will run on Sunday) I am again choosing my 12 favorite items from this auction.
12 Lang's Items I Would Buy If Only I Could Afford Them
This Pflueger Sea-King is one of the toughest of the mainstream saltwater reels to find. Honestly, this is only the second one I've ever seen. It's spectacularly rare.
Well, I just can't pass up this Philbrook & Paine fly reel. The epitome of class and elegance.
Who wouldn't want this Stan Bogdan fly reel?
There's always room for a Tycoon Tackle HRH trolling rod!
This 8' Garrison is just an incredible rod.
Ray Bergman flies are a great collectable.
This pair of Ed. vom Hofe line spools is super great.
Holy schnikeys, they don't come much rarer than this Heddon Underwater Expert.
The paperwork is what makes this Howe's Vacuum combo so special.
Loving the heavy metal in this auction, including this Gregory Clipper.
They don't come much crazier than this #3000 Pikie in all luminous.
BAKER'S DOZEN BONUS ITEM:
This 25.4 pound steel mold was used to make the Pflueger fishing tackle signs we've written up on the blog before here and here. Amazing find!
As always, have a great weekend, and be good to each other, and yourself. And have fun with the Lang's auction!
