My collection of Tadpollies and Tiny Tads in the "Nepean" colour.
I am amazed at the variations of the colour over the years

What is the time line for all the different colours. When did they first appear.

Do you have to purchase direct from USA.

Neat lure.
Is it the same blank for all lures. (Cost effective)

Regards John

They are a US lure John but have been available in Australia from time to time. I purchased my first one from Mick Simmons in Penrith in the late 70's and have purchased them mainly through ebay from America over the years. I think that Heddon only dropped the colour maybe 10 years ago. The most recent ones have the yellow bibs. The colour was very popular with the Nepean and Western Districts Fishing Clubs in th 70's and 80's.

Nice collection. Why was that particular colour pattern so successful & popular?
