Picked up this lure recently and thought it was a cheap Chinese copy originally however looking at the screwed in metal bib and the trebles fitted without split rings had me second guessing. Can anyone assist me please with identification.

Thanks for that, Yeah might have to see what is around. I have bellbrooks and Abu Hi-lo's and they are similar. closer to an Abu , might look for a chart on the models they made

An American company named Herters also made Runt copies - late 1960's to 1970's.
