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
