The odds are that you won't find a new RHF (Red Head Flitter) Yellow Belly Heddon Zara Spook like this at your local fishing tackle shop — it's a limited production Heddon bait.
Heddon produced a limited number of these Heddon Zara Spook Red Head Flitter old style baits - about 600 of them - in Heddon's vintage RHF color AND with the old-style line tie on the bait's nose. Note the sparkling flitter on the sides, and the darker stripe along the top, and 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 (i.e., 4 three packs) offers a per-bait savings compared to the typical 3-pack quantity. Lure collectors purchase these baits as an investment because the production quantity was tiny, and fishermen buy these baits because they catch fish!
