F - Frog

LURE(S) PICTURED: Hi-Tail (305F), Tiny Deep Dive River Runt Spook (DD350F), Tiny Floating River Runt Spook (340F)

There are 2 variations of this color, both having a green body with yellow spots that have black centers. One variation has a yellow belly as seen on the Hi-Tail and Deep Dive Tiny Runt and the other has a white belly. Comes in both gold eye versions which date to around 1960 and a white eye version that dates to mid to late 1960's. This is a cataloged color for the Hi-Tail, c. 1960. It is a uncataloged color for the River Runt Spooks.

This is nearly identical to Heddon's Frog Spot color that came on wood lures, color code 9B.
