Default Lip material and patterns ?

I have some thin stainless sheet metal that I have cut up for Danny plugs based on the info at this site:

But I'd like to branch out and try an atom 40 style or maybe a junior swimmer. Since I don't have either to measure.......I was wondering if anyone had patterns or suggestions.

I'll appreciate the help. Jay

New Jersey tackle sells every style of lip out there, and they also sell an assortment of 1 of each. They sponsor this forum, click on the banner.

Thanks, Gunny: I've been to the NJT web page. They have great stuff, and I will undoubtedly place an order. My first attempt at that got lost in space somewhere, probably as a result of operator head-space difficulties on my part.

I was just in a roll-your-own mood and trying to see if there were lip-patterns available for guys like me who don't have samples to copy. Roll-your-own? I tie flies and don't make my own hooks or keep chickens, so go figure.

Getting close to finishing my first danny and will try to put up a pic when I do. Its one step forward, two steps back sometimes, but youse guys have been a great help and inspiration. Jay

If you want to make your own just get your hands on a commercial lip that you like and carefully flatten it out - there's your pattern, shape, bends, hole, everything.

Pull a lip out of a trashed plug and it'll cost you nothing.
