Hedd Hunter Minnow

After I'm back, I checked my old tackle boxes and catalogs to find how many and which colors of Hedd Hunter Minnows I have in stock. Untransparent body colors including some luminescent ones are shown in both Japan (Olympic, Smith) and US catalogs, but those of clear body with fish flash foils are introduced in only Smith's catalogs. According to Smith's 1983 catalog, they specially ordered Heddon to make such fish-flash colors for Japan market that year.

I'm thinking I should have bought more of the fish-flash colors such as RH and green mackerel, though about 30 years have passed since then.
