The odds are that you won't find a new RHF Yellow Belly Heddon Zara Spook like this at your local fishing tackle shop — it's a limited production Heddon bait.
Heddon reproduced a limited number of these Heddon Zara Spooks in Heddon's vintage Red Head Flitter Yellow Belly color (note the light yellow belly, the sparkling Flitter, and the darker back ridge), and with the line-tie in the old-style nose location rather than on the bait's chin.
This limited edition Heddon bait exhibits the old-style action (i.e., nose-tie action) in the classic length that is approximately 4 3/8 (4.375) inches from the end of the line-tie to the other end of the bait. The 12-pack (4 three packs) offers a per-bait savings compared to the 3-pack. Heddon lure collectors by these baits because the production quantity was tiny (i.e., as an investment), and fishermen buy these baits because they catch fish!
According to Heddon, only 625 of these limited reproduction nose-tie RHF-colored Zara Spook lures were made.
