Torpedo Style #1 Swimmer Plug Kit


This Torpedo style plug is a very balanced and symmetric plug that pivots on its mid-point giving a very fluid like S-Pattern swimming action.  It’s a shallow surface swimmer intended for calm or slow moving water.  This unique swimmer is manufactured from the highest quality Alaskan Yellow Cedar (AYC) and is just under 5” long and weighs around 1 1/4 ounces finished.  The perfect hook configuration would be either a teaser tail or a dressed siwash bucktail hook with a size #1/0 or #2/0 treble belly hook.

Kit includes everything shown, including the body drilled for thru wire and grommets, wire, nickel plated belly & tail grommets, belly weight, swivels and the Lefty #1 Style lip (same lip used on this no longer made classic).

This is a great way to break into plug building.  These kits are perfect for both the novice and pro plug builder.  No need to purchase expensive machinery that takes up valuable shop & garage space.  Great for the do-it-yourselfer that lacks the needed space for a full blown wood shop.

This kit does not come with hooks.  We recommend either the VMC #9626PS or Mustad #35517 size 2/0.
