Good floppy's are fetching good money,anything from $60 to $200 . As for you blue one what size was it and did it have stainless steel hooks, the large had them.

The Blue Flopy only come in one size, Large. There is a colour similar, it starts off blue at the nose & changes from blue to like yellowish over blue.

Some people do get the blue and green mixed up, there is a big difference between them. The earlier flopys were hand painted so two were never identical, even the body rubber varied in colour so the top colour did vary a little. When I use to buy them from the local tackle shop I always checked the colouring for what i wanted, sometimes depending on the batch they would be painted the same colour code but be very different

Also with regards to the Blue Flopy's, not only did they come in one size, but the one's you see advertised in the hard plastic boxes are also incorrect. What I have found out is the Blue only come out in the Blister packaging. They all had stainless steel hooks as they were the salt water series. Here are a few of my collection.

What is the time line, plain clear plastic boxes, through to the blister packs then the closure of the floppy line, early 80's

My first good lure caught fish was on a medium Flopy, beautiful silver perch in the Namoi River. Bloody magic lures.

The last of the many...
