    Personally, I don't have the faintess idea of what puddle jumpers are, but if you would go to and ask Sam Crenshaw, he'll probably point you in the right direction... I hope this helps... Hawk

    Greg: Puddle Jumpers are a soft plastic split tail lure about 1-1/2-2" long. Most southern tackle catalogs list them especially Bass Pro Shops. They are used with lead head jigs in the same way tubes are used. They are really popular on Toledo Bend for crappy. Hope this helps

    They are not the easiest to describe. Check out page 54 of the 25th Anniversary In-Fisherman Special Issue.

    My father CDR Hasty Williams (USN Ret.), David Dearmore, and I own Dearmore-Williams Manufacturing Company. We manufacture the Puddle Jumper, Fliptail, and the Reaper. Our manufacturing plant is located in Yellville, Arkansas. Phone number is (870) 449-LURE (5873) Ask For Hasty. By the way, I have fished our new 9 1/4 " Fliptail Worm at Lake Fork with incredible success. Good luck, enjoy our products, and stop by to see the facility if any of you are ever in Yellville, Arkansas located near Bull Shoals/Norfork Lake and the famous White River...northern Arkansas. Email me at if i can be of any further assistance.

    Sincerely, Mark Williams, M.D.
