AC Plugs #1 Iconic Swimbait All Time
This article is a few years old but still timely. https://sdfish.com/top-lists/top-12-most-iconic-swimbaits-of-all-time/13/ SD Fish voted the AC Plug as the #1 most iconic swimbait of all time. They got it exactly right: "The one thing that is not up for debate is that the AC Plug took the big bass chase by storm in the early 1990s, and set forth the motion that inspired every other bait on this list."

New Handmade Lure Released!
Allan's trophy trout days all begun in the 1970s using lures like Rapala and Rebel. It was only a matter of time before he came out with a handmade AC Plug that shared that tried and true basic hardbait style. He has added his signature tail, turned down the line tie eye and used a very buoyant wood to exaggerate the side to side wobble that big trout can't refuse. The "Allan's AC Ripbait" is a must have for any trophy trout angler's arsenal! Check out the new lure in the web store under the handmade section!
