(To view an article on this subject and a picture of the catalog listing, click HERE.) Though an example of a lure in this color has yet to be found, it is a Rainbow color pattern but with a solid white or luminous painted belly rather than a scale pattern belly. It is only found on pre-WWII lures. The exact name is unknown. (Special thanks to Doug Ramey for the pictures!)
