As usual, very impressive work Mull...................................
Canal Fish will definately get some lip scarrs this year.

Funny thing about this year, I've yet to do any top waters until this week.
I finally got over my phobia about swimmers and hit the ground running.
I'll post some pictures soon, not only some really sick color schemes, but the actions are beyond what I expected.
Played around with standard shapes with non standard lips that really worked out.
400 plugs in various stages of completion, over 150 done and ready for Bass.
By next week all will be done, then I do pencils and spooks.
Sometimes being laid off aint a bad thing...........................

thanks guys, gunny, i know what you mean about swimmer phobia.i have no confidence in most of the swimming plugs ive made.i was looking at my plugs today and could only find one metal lip that i had made myself that had caught well for me.and as you can tell by the rusty hooks its been on my plug wall for quite a while!!
