Foam Frog

Recommended Posts

Here's my favorite frog fly I modified from a few similar patterns. I don't make them weedless but you can if you want to. The eyes I use are the craft store doll eyes which i like since they are big and rounded. Probably doesn't matter buts its a confidence thing with me. If it has eyes, I'll seem to catch more. You can add some lead wire near the bend of the hook to get that semi submerged look, or even flatten split shot and glue it between the foam near the bend if you like. 

  • Eagle Claw bait holder (size 2 or 1)
  • White/Green foam , glued together
  • White dubbing
  • Rubber legs
  • Eyes

That's a good looking frog.  What are you using for the white body?  Is the foam just on top-that's what it appears to be?

Yeah, its just the foam on top. I am not a fan of sandwiching the foam between the shank as it gets messy with glue and the foam never matches up right. Its easier to glue and cut the foam as one and then tie it in.. You don't even need the dubbing, really. I've caught bass with the thread showing on the shank against the white foam.
