1961 to Current
Non-Cataloged Colors

Heddon Tiny Torpedo Spooks are one of the most successful production lures, spanning over 50 years. With this long production period, comes many variations both in cataloged and non-cataloged colors. It can be one of the toughest lures to color collect.

I'm going to attempt to show all non-cataloged colors known, with some variations. Please remember that I'm showing 1961 to present-day colors, see Early Tiny Torpedo Colors for the gold eye versions of some of these colors.
