Upstate, I like the poppers. Simple, clean and effective. 
 

Same goes for those foam bugs, Philly I like those.

I started to straighten up my tying deck last night, and somehow ended up with these in my vice. 

A take off of  'Tony's Froggie'  posted by @Philly above.  I had no thick foam, so I cut 1/4 inch strips of green and yellow sticky back craft foam and stuck 'em together.  I thought if I added bucktail legs to the outside of the body, it would give me more 'leg action', and who doesn't like more of that.  Pins for eyes, as that's all had on hand.  Have to see how much the legs add to the resistance if I ever see open water again.  They certainly are quick to tie.

Nice.  Tony passed away last year.  He'd appreciate your "take" on his pattern.  He always urged me to experiment with his patterns.  Haven't tied them with legs, as they've  were always effective the way they were.   I've got a life time supply of spinner bait skirts and skirt layers.  I might tie up some up with legs and do a comparison.  Let the fish vote on which one they like.  I've tied them down to size 20 and have caught trout on them.  I've got those small foam cylinders that are used for wing posts.  I'll do up a dozen and add them to my trout box. Maybe size 18, not sure I can see a size 20 these days.
