Very interesting....Never saw those hooks.  Slight bend with pliers and great hump shanks for poppers!

I didn't think of that, that's a good idea for sure.

Started playing around with the Crawbody, they work well if you get a solid base under them. Looking forward to giving them a try once the ice melts. I have always had decent luck with crayfish patterns.

 

I used burlap in a way to make both the underbodies for the stone and the crayfish to be flat so that I could get a nice realistic profile without filling the hook gap.

 

If interested you can see the step-by-step here.

Finally got around to giving these frogs a go on the vise. Found these skip gap hooks and had some fun playing with belly profiles. Can't wait for the ice to melt to give them a cast.

Very nice flies. The spruce is such a handsome pattern. I have had some good luck with it for brookies as well. Duck mountains in the fall, the brooks can't resist that colour combo.
