The Friday Funhouse


The Video of the Week

NOTE: apologies for the lack of the Funhouse last week, was busy graduating my daughter from high school!

I just finished my 10-years in the making book on glass fly rods, so they've been on my mind. I found this interview with Cameron Mortenson of the Fiberglass Manifesto blog and thought it was cool.

You don't see too many Frank Knill Spoons on Cards.



Whoah. This ABU 5500CDL in Teak Box is out of this world cool.


Oddball spinning reels have been coming out of the word work of late and none are as tank-like as this Hardy Altex Mk 1.



I absolutely love these original Fred Young Big O's.



You won't see too many CCBC 5-Hook Minnows in the box.

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