Heddon Tiny Teaz Fly Lure
The Heddon Tiny Teaz Fly Lure was first introduced in 1930. This pint sized Heddon lure, made in Dowagiac Michigan was very short lived. While introduced in 1930 this lure would disappear into obscurity by 1934 and not even make the lure line up catalog that year. This tiny little trout, bass, and other small game fish minnow was made of wood, measuring 1 3/4″ in length. This antique lure was assigned a model 80 if your lucky enough to find a matching box.
The lure has small painted eyes, a single tiny line tie at the front of the lure inset into the slightly concave mouth. You wont have to worry about throwing your back out carrying around this guy to fish with as he weighs in at just around 1/10th of an ounce. The lure would certainly float when not being drawn through the water. The catalog states “A lively little lure of many uses. Primarily designed as a fly-rod lure for large Trout, it is also very effective for Bass and pan fish. Floats and dives when retrieved with excellent action. One double hook so placed to insure hooking.”
