SDF - Shad

LURE(S) PICTURED: Big Tiger (1040SDF), Midget Digit Spook (9020SDF)
DESCRIPTION: Big Tiger: Green spine, green head, silver flash insert sides, silver flitter or silver glitter on sides, red around eyes. This is a cataloged color for this lure in 1970. The Midget Digit Spook is identical to the standard 'Shad' color except it has silver flitter on it. This is a uncataloged color for this lure. Strangely, Heddon assigned "SDF" as the color code but the name as listed in the catalogs is still Shad, Not Shad Flitter as one might expect. (Special thanks to Bill Peters for the pictures of the Midget Digit!)
