Thanks PD, Mark & Niveker.

The last one has been kitchen sink tested and floats fine.

All that's left is the swim test to see how well it wiggles and dives.

A nice, simple, and easy to tie frog.  That's just the combo we need.  It looks effective and appears simple and cheap enough to replace that you're not afraid of losing it so you can go ahead and throw it into fish holding/fly stealing places.

Well done

Dave

another alternative is to add material to a phelps floating jig.   nice wide gap short hook,. just add tail and you can pull legs thru or just ti e them on using the same color thread  that works for smallies  too rob         rich mc

Nice assortment Denduke I need to try them as a strike indicator like you do.

Rich mc have you seen how you can make your own Floating Jigs?

This is something I have to try with some of my molds, just need to get some EPB and hooks.  Adding legs is a great idea.
