Series: #4300 River Scamp

Years Produced: C. 1933 1954     Length: 2 3/4     Weight: .5 oz.

General Notes: Resembles a Baby Pikie but it isnt. It has a belly weight in front of the belly hook, a large scallop on top of the head & its 1/2 shorter. The River Scamp is one of seven series offered (as an option) with a Deep Diver lip starting in 1950. Scamps were originally for sale at 90c in the 1930s. The #00 color was Chub, a color offered on only five series.

Description of Pictured Lure:
#4305 DD in Dace. Notice the extended Deep Diver lip. Also, the BLUE area between the sides & back of the body. This supposedly defines this color from the new Red Side pattern although there is usually a heated discussion when one of these baits is offered - trying to decide if the bait is one color or the other.
