The Classic CCBCo Lure Colors

A COMPILATION OF BAITCASTING & SPINCASTING WOODEN LURES NUMBERED IN THE 1916-1960 “Glass Eye Era”

ORIGINAL SERIES:
#100 Wiggler-#9600 Spinning Deepster plus the Feather Casting Minnow Series

The CCBCO numbering system can be confusing. Lures produced before 1925 have a different  color code for each bait!  For instance, a 100 series Wiggler used “04” as the color number for Red Head/ White. The 500 series Open Mouth Shiner used “02’ Red Head/ White.

All the numbers used here are based on the new system devised in 1925 by CCBCo. Most colors were given their own individual number (e.g. 07 Mullet). One of the notable exceptions is the “00” (zero, zero) designation that was used on twelve different colors.

By the late 1950’s the company began adding new colors to the line which often used numbers on colors that were NO LONGER MADE (known as retired numbers). As an example, the obsolete #09 Brilliant Greenback pattern was replaced in 1962 with #09 Shad. Most of the numbers shown below represent the original colors Creek Chub collectors are accustomed to seeing. Whenever a color is named next to a number, it is typically a late color so you won't assume it is one of the earlier classic era colors. A chart follows the listing listing all the colors.

  • To recap: The lures/colors listed here are from the #100-#9600 Original Series plus one "F" Series bait casting bait and NOT the mixed numbering system used pre-1925 NOR the Replacement Series.
  • This listing is for WOODEN baits unless the bait was made in PLASTIC-ONLY baits. If plastic-only, I will make a note so you will know this is the only catalog option for this bait/color.
  • No fly rod or Shur-Strike colors, except the fly rod series #1000, 1100, 1200, 1300. They are part of this study because they are numbered within the Original Series.
  • The numbers listed are CATALOG COLORS.  Obviously, a listing of special order colors would be never- ending.

CCBCo Color Check List

This listing is a quick reference check if you decide to specialize in certain Creek Chub Company CATALOG colors & wish to know how many series were made in your favorite color.

Certainly there will be some errors, omissions & different interpretations of which colors should & shouldn't be listed here.  If you can substantiate any other catalog colors or lures that belong within this time period, please let me hear from you. I hope to publish inevitable changes in the future. We know certain patterns were produced by the new owners in 1977-1978, but without a catalog, it isn't possible to know what issues were standard and which coloprs were Specials.
