A collector sent me some of the plastic Bob Pond atom 40's and some of those old musso darters.
I had sold him some Russo flaptails that came into my possession. Russo made the flaptails
from 1946 to 57. Bob Pond made wooden atom swimmers only for a couple of years from 1946 to 48.
Then went to plastic. I also have some hellcats from the 70's.

The first is an atom 40 with the groove for tying an eel skin
and a modified rotary head of some kind on a popper body

I finally got a chance to really read through this Bassdozer article. If anyone hasn't read it yet, it's definately worth the time.

Are there any books out there that discuss vintage saltwater plugs?

The 1973 book written by George Reiger called Profiles in
Saltwater Angling has information on the birth of saltwater lures, and New England surf fishing around WWII.
