With lots of frogs and fishing pressure on my home bass waters, I wanted a realistic immitation that I could present as quietly as the naturals. This fly will fish on the surface with short little pops, or dive under with long line strips.

Hook: Gamakatsu B10S sz. 1/0
Thread: Danville Flymaster plus
Weedguard: 30lb flourocarbon
Legs: 2 rabbit zonkers
Leg possitioner: 2-part, 5-minute epoxy
Under collar: rabbit zonker
Over collar: deer hair
Head: Rainy's Foam Diver

First things first...

Trim the hair fairly close, and flat on the bottom, just to add bulk to the body, but leave some longer tips on top of the fly.

Bring the weedguard forward and push it through the hook eye, then tie it off and clip excess.

Orient the fly upside-down, and spread eagle. Mix up a bit of 2-part epoxy and fill the space where the legs, hook, and weedguard meet. Let cure with the legs at a 90 degree angle from each other, 45 degrees off hook center.
