Thanks. Will do! Lots of worms to decipher. I probably have about 75 (well maybe) to ID. I'm reading up on the types and finding out a few. But some I have not seen. Most I have not seen are from the stock that were my grandparents'.

I'm assuming you're just trying for basic worm type and color. There are a ton of variations, trying to get more specific than that could be very time consuming and largely unnecessary.  

Measure them, there's your length.  If you don't know the basic types like ribbon tail, etc then just get on one of the tackle sales sites and start browsing soft plastics. There are a blue million different color names by different manufacturers but I don't think you need to get super accurate with that either. Just the basic color family.  

If you're hammering fish on a very specific soft plastic then I would spend the time to figure out exactly the manufacturer and color.

Its very possible that you're gonna have some older baits that are discontinued colors and styles.

Makes sense. I just like organization and things in order so to do this made sense to me. You're probably right about discontinued variants so my efforts could be friutless. Here's one to start.

There's absolutely nothing wrong with that. Hope I didn't come off like there was. 

I wish I had a little bit more of the organizational tendencies myself.  I'm a semi controlled chaos kind of guy.  

There are many knowledgable folks on here.  It never ceases to amaze me the knowledge base here on older lures.  Your post actually got me thinking about asking a question here myself about a lure I can no longer source.  

Beat of luck in your search.

Make sure to look closely at the baits, some companies have their names on the molds so they'll be poured into the bait somewhere.

Not Fliptails, but could be a Strembridge worm of some other type.
