the Freaky Frog

by Chad Johnson via The Ozark Fly Fisher Journal

too cool to not tie up a few for your own fishing, these little creatures have all the right elements to entice, notably with the weighted butt this should not only gurgle, splash and wiggle but also bob back and forth: destined to catch more than a few frog-eaters.
be sure to tie a few more and cut off the hook so your little ones can play with them in the bath. enjoy !

  1. Very Nice. What size and make of hook? What type of thread? Thanks.

      The Freaky Frog is an awesome surface fly for largemouth and smallmouth bass: and if you fish froggy stillwaters in trout country don’t be surprised that it works there as well.
