"CreekSpeak" - Show 'N Tell

Series: #1700 Polly Wiggle 

Years Produced: 1924 – 1931     Length: 1 3/4”     Weight: .5 oz.

General Notes: The #00 Pollywog pattern with the metallic green spots is unique to this series. Also made in red & white. Offered with a synthetic “pork rind” & a wire weed guard from the factory. Both are usually missing. The rind doesn’t seem to affect value but if the guard is gone the value is cut in half. A very unusual bait from CCBCO, it has bead eyes & a single tail hook. 

Description of Pictured Lure:
#1700 in Pollywog. Produced as a “weedless” bait with the weed guard, single hook & a rear screw eye. Usually seen with the paint cracking or missing around the lead belly weight. A special flat sided single hook was utilized.
