Hola Steve

The Auto is short for Automatic and we also have the Semi - auto. 

Tried a copy of a new chub head pattern (Semi-auto) in July that was a producer. The original knock off (1/80th & #12 hook) was too small (almost all gut hooks). When it unravled (Auto) it seemed to produce a little better. So bumped it up to a 1/32nd roundhead jig & #8 hook and tyed the jig both ways.

The Auto got it's name because the first tye caught 7 fish with 7 casts. The Semi-auto was 5 for 7. Easy and cheap to tye - we like the chartreuse green & yellow & glo-pink colors.

Can we get a little more to go on? "Auto" by itself doesn't google up as any sort of fishing lure....
