Friday Funhouse

The Friday Funhouse

Video of the Week

This is one of the coolest old fishing videos (it's only 3 minutes long but you'll have to wait a bit for the fishing to start) as it shows Duluth, Minnesota--my home town--in the summer of 1938. How cool is the fishing gear they are using on a normal calm Lake Superior day? This is an awesome video.

Things I Would Buy If I Could Afford Them

A nice Pflueger Kent Floater Frog is a cool way to begin the Funhouse.

This Leonard Model 50 is a classy little fly reel.

The previous reel and this Leonard Mills trout reel would like nice side by side.

Everyone loves a Creek Chub Gar.

There was a time when Pflueger Golden West fly reels could be found for a relative pittance. Not any more.

This is a neat Pagan Scale Bass-Oreno in original box.

Paw Paw bass bugs in the Indian Sign box do not show up often.

This Cook, Newton & Smith is a real sleeper of a rod.

Instant Collection Alert: A nice set of eight Midget River Runt Spooks, including a really rare "Gold" color.

Speaking of rare colors, how about Flourescent Yellow Crawdad on a Heddon Tiny Torpedo Spook?

A Penn Model 706 is a great spinning reel.

A Creek Chub Baby Wiggler in introbox will make some CCBC collector VERY happy.

This South Bend Pike-Oreno has received some intense interest...

The CCBC Deluxe Wagtail Chub is a personal favorite of mine.

This L&S Pikemaster is in a very rare color.

Finally, a Winter's Weedless Bait new in a picture box is a super rare combo.

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