Heddon Hi Tail Antique Lure
The Heddon Hi Tail Antique Lure was first introduced into Heddon’s Line up in 1960. This plastic spook lure is 2″ in length and tops the charts at 1/3 oz. The antique lure a model series #305 can be found in both white painted eyes, or with gold. The lure is a novelty type looking like a small guppy or “Whale” and has always been a big hit with kid collectors. The lure was not ever considered a great fisher and would soon be gone from the Heddon (Daisy) lure line up. The lure has a forward line tie, a diving lip and uses the Bell Hardware to connect it’s one treble hook.
The lure was available in a handful of standard colors and can also be found in a few coveted un-cataloged colors, such as the BWC or Winner, Indy Checkered Flag as shown in the gallery below. Any un-cataloged colors should be considered rare as they dont turn up that often.
