12 Thing I Would Buy If Only I Could Afford Them

This is a BEAST of a Heddon Musky 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.

Angling Echoes Season of Ice Fishing

Angling Echoes Season of Ice Fishing

Angling Echoes Season of Ice Fishing; Emerson Hough (1857-1923) was one of the finest American outdoor writers of his era. Best known for his historical novels like The Mississippi Bubble and 54-40 or Fight, he penned the “Chicago and the West” column for Forest & Stream for many years, introducing many American readers for the first time to the wonders of angling and hunting in the Midwest. In this article, penned for one of the dozen or so Chicago daily newspapers, he gives a beautiful description of what ice fishing was like in the late nineteenth century.-Ed

Season of Ice Fishing

By Emerson Hough

……Indeed, winter is a time of the keenest delight for outdoor
folk. As a season it is all too little understood. The men who growl at winter only advertise their own decadence. It is the men from the winter countries who have done the great things in this world. The land that knows no snow is not the place for a man to live who wants to get the most out of his natural endowment of energy and resource.
