    What was the name of the smallest Heddon tadpolly type lure? Thought it was the tiny tad, but not sure. I believe it had a single treble, versus two small trebles.

    You are correct, it was called the Tiny Tad. I still have 6 of the original ones, and they all have 2 small trebles on them. Great little lure in faster water.

    What a great lure!! Drop those things back into likely hides and hang on!! Worked great in fast water has mentioned. The Flatfish for slower current and the tadpolly for fast current.....a deadly combination for any fish!

    The Tiny Tad was a pretty popular lure in its day. Still good for coho trolling in Lake Mich. It has two small treble hooks. Actually the smallest Tadpoly was a Wee Tad. It only had one small treble and was not shaped at all like the others in the Tadpoly line. It never caught very many fish for me.
