COLOR NAME: G-Fleck Blue Shore Minnow
LURE(S) PICTURED: Baby Torpedo (361GFXBL), Zara Spook (9255GFXBL)
DESCRIPTION: White body with light blue face and spine, silver ribs. The body is covered with flitter (glitter or 'specks') and coated with a glossy, irridescent finish. The 'G' stands for 'guanine' (pronounced gw'nen) which is a "organic base of the purine family" and " said to account for the iridescence of fish scales and the white, shiny appearance of the skin of many amphibians and reptiles", according to the Columbia Encyclopedia. This is a cataloged color for this lure; c. 2000's. (Picture of Zara Spook courtesy of Michael Anderson!)
