Thanks to everyone so far for the advice from everyone, it's been beyond helpful so far.

Here are my first creations - a danny (AYC) and an atom 40 eelskin (Basswood). I've made a few of each. they will be sealed and rigged and tested asap!

BTW - I realize i have the rear hook too far back on the 40. Do you think it will affect it?

Not really, but you could dowel fill.the whole ans move it if you want.

Good start.

They look great

I think the back hook on the 40 is perfect placement, won't tangle with the front hook, and doesn't catch the rear edge of the the plug.

Eelskin plugs crush btw

I purposely locate the rear hook further back than the original design to eliminate hook tangle. Many times in building , slight changes from the original design are done for personal action and swim depths. Nice swimming plug. Eelskins "rule".

Thanks guys. I was worried the rear hook being so far back would affect the action. However, if it doesn't I do prefer it to be back there so that the hooks don't tangle. Can't wait to swim these guys!

Now i need to seal and test!
