12 Thing I Would Buy If Only I Could Afford Them
This is a BEAST of a Heddon Muky Lure.
I’ve seen a lot of Bear Creek decoys growing up in Northern Minnesota but I don’t know if I’ve seen any that were this popular!
A Gold Ambassadeur 5500C is a great find!
This early wood minnow (possibly Woods?) has gotten a lot of interest.
I’ve always felt the Shakespeare underwater minnows like this Kazoo 3-Hook were greatly underrated.
You won’t find a nicer Horton Meek #5 combo than this one!
English made baits are always fun to collect and this old Devon is no exception.
This Don Musso Needlefish is a rare example of saltwater lure craftsmanship.
Several things I like about this Zangi 3V. First, its a classic Italian spinning reel. Second, its in a Taico box — a company best known for cheap Japanese imports. The American Import Co. (TAICO) did in fact import tackle from around the globe, not just Japan.
An old brass clamp reel is a classic early 19th century fishing reel. Kudos to the artistic photo!
Collectors need to recognize that these Hetzel Tuna Jigs are very collectable.
Give some love to this Central Wisconsin Bon-Net Musky Bait
As always, have a great weekend — and be good to each other, and yourself.
