Keep frog pattern upright

Recommended Posts

I am trying to tie a frog pattern and wondering how I can keep it from rolling over onto its back whenever I cast it. Also, wind resistance seems to be a major problem and I cannot cast it very far due to it. I am trying to cast this fairly large pattern with a 5wt rod and line. Perhaps I am tying it too big and need to adjust the size. Is there a trick to keep them upright? Thanks for any advice members can offer.

 

See picture. Its simply two pieces of foam and rubber legs. This photo was taken after I chopped off part of the legs in effort to make him more aerodynamic. I added weight to the bend of the hook.

I use to tie a big huge deer hair frog that would do that. I wrapped some lead wire around the bend of the hook

Do you have a picture of the pattern you're using?
