NGL - Natural Bluegill

COLOR NAME: Natural Bluegill
LURE(S) PICTURED: Tiny Torpedo (363NGL), Tiny River Runt Spooks(353NGL), Sonar (431NGL), Tiny Lucky 13 Spook (370NGL)
DESCRIPTION: Blue spine and face, blue and green side and belly with black printed scale, gill & fin pattern on sides, blue face and blue eyes. This 'printed' pattern is often referred to as 'photofinish'. This is a cataloged color for River Runt Spooks in 1980. The Tiny Torpedo has a clear belly. Like many of the 'natural' colors, there are significant variations in the color shading and pattern as exemplified by the two examples of the Tiny Runt shown.

This is one of several Heddon colors referred to as 'naturals' that were made in the late 1970's and early 1980's, such as Natural Shad and Natural Bass to name but two. To see a picture of all of the Natural colors, click HERE.
