Is it frog season yet?

Looks good, Nathan. If you get to fish that, please try taking some pictures (better yet, video) of it in the water.

Nice tie there, nathan.
Always quit when you're through.

That's a nice frog. Since I usually fish with a 6 wgt one tied on a 4/0 hook is a bit heavy though I do have some 4/0 double hooks lying around. I also have some size 2 which would work better with a 6 wgt. Did you make the legs or are they the pre-made ones? I just took a closer look and that answered my other question as to whether the foam would give enough to set the hook. How thick is the foam? One of the guys I fish with is obsessed with frogs though he uses tackle from the dark side. I got into a discussion in the fresh water section on another board with a guy from Thailand who uses frog imitations to fish for snakeheads there. He posted a picture of the lures he makes and there were a couple that looked like they could be converted to fly fishing using foam instead of plastic. Here's the picture of them he posted. Might be able to get some additional ideas from them.
