RFB - Fluorescent, Black Spot or Spotted Redhorse

COLOR NAME: Fluorescent, Black Spot or Spotted Redhorse
LURE(S) PICTURED: Tadpolly Spook (9000RFB), Devil Diver (616RFB) , Tadpolly Spook (9000RFB)

Solid red with black spots. The 1979 Heddon catalog lists the name for this color as Spotted Redhorse though earlier catalogs called it Fluorescent, Black Spot. The difference between the two is that Spotted Redhorse is a glossy, enamel color while the Fluorescent, Black Spot is a matte or soft finish color. The Tadpolly Spook shown on the right is the Fluorescent, Red Horse color.

The Devil Diver (c. 1982-1984) has a white and grey scale belly pattern instead of a solid red belly as the two Tadpolly Spooks.

This is a cataloged color for all lures shown.
