Friday Funhouse

The Friday Funhouse

Video of the Week

This one you have to see to believe. WARNING: there is some harsh language in it, so watch the volume and where you watch it. But man alive, I simply can't imagine this happening. I think I'd quit fishing.

Things I Would Buy If I Could Afford Them

This Kent Frog is an absolute classic.

A beautiful B.F. Meel & Sons #2 would be a centerpiece of any Kentucky Reel collection.

Pretty much everyone into metal is looking for a G.M. Skinner Turkey Foot spinner.

Hendryx sold millions of reels, but Hendryx boxes like this just don't come up for sale as often as you'd think.

These stop-latch models are some of the neatest of the Victorian reels.

Hawks & Ogilvy was a great old New York tackle shop, and this 1878 letterhead is a very early one.

We've seen the Bronson Invader. The Hawthorne Invader. Now get the J.A. Coxe Invader.

These Colorado Floating Moths always make me think of the late Cliff McDaniel...

There probably hasn't been as nice (or rare) of a reel on eBay of late as this 16/0 Kovalovsky model.

Were it not for the previous model, this Zwarg 2/0 Fly Reel would have been the reel of the week.

While not a high ticket item, finding these Bronson Modern 100 reels with the level wind intact can be a bit of a task.

Sewell N. Dunton worked for Montague City Rod & Reel Company, and when the firm closed its doors, purchased the forms and founded his own company. This Dunton Angler's Choice model is a continuation of the Montague tradition of moderate, useable rods.

Your Heddon of the week is this amazing 700 Musky Minnow.

As always, be good to each other, and yourself.
