My favorite shallow water plug. I used to see them made years ago by a few guys,  but haven't seen them in years. 

Hahn used to make them and a RI guy, Tiger plugs. SS had them in their line up too.

Anyone know a clipless maker today?

My last one:

I wish more guys made them today.  I’d like to try some.  Luckily I can try and build my own! 
Is RI builder Plugman?

No, Plugman was Del Barber, and sadly he passed on a few years back. Tiger was a guy, who posted here too, who made lipless swimmers. I forget the guys name. I fished with him years ago

There were rumors many years ago SS was going to make one.  I know Donny has sold a few wooden ones at the shows in the past. I'm still waiting w/my credit card.

In terms of commercial builders, I’ve yet to see them which is why I build them myself.  Also heard the rumors mentioned above, also heard he was never quite happy with them

Tome, it's a plug that needs to be made of wood. I don't know how a plastic lipless would swim.:howdy:
