  3. I don't know when they started making them but I can recall fishing with them around 60 years ago. Never liked them as much as the Jitter Bug.

    Is it wood or plastic? The first one were wooden. Later they went to plastic. I have 5 different ones. Some small some large. Also have jitterbugs, hula poppers and bass o-renos that are all wooden. I know some are at least from 1930's as my grandfather used them.

  7. It's a plastic one. The eyes are a cream color,not yellow (unless wear and tear made them more cream than yellow). The wings are held in place with a pin. From the site F4F gave me i would guess it's a 9120. so that means it may have been made as early as 1956, 1957.

    Hmm. it says ''a general rule is that Heddon lures had a larger pupil and the later Pradco lures had a smaller more well defined pupil.''
    If i go with the eyes Pradco made it?
