Question Hey Capesams!!!!!!

Steve, was there ever a color chart produced by Bob Pond for Atom Mfg. Co. lures and if so do you know how many there were?

Just curious, You see Green Eel, Herring Blue Mottled etc, never knew if there was such a thing what with all the colors he produced.

Thanks in advance for the info!

Why even try.........

Bob didn't beleive in paper work...maybe one or two/ two page booklet...that's it and they were in black and white.

different colors...best guess would be around 77 in plastic.
wood...5-7
foam..around 7

there's 3 green eel's
half doz. amber's same with blue/pink/red swirl
3...oil's
4 red's etc.

plus many more that never made to market cause he hated what came out of the mold when colors got mixed together.he was picky and rejected alot of them...love to get my hands on those.

BOAT fish do count.
