Experimental frog



Body is made by slicing a conical edgewater boilermaker popper body lengthwise.

Hook is 3/0 Orvis Bass Bug.

I built a "platform" of 30lb stiff mono each side of the hookshank to help prevent the body moving.

Liberal use of superglue throughout the construction process!

Legs/feet are triple strands of silli-legs glued into place between the two body halves. To create the "feet" simply tie a knot and splay out the individual strands.

The rear legs are at least twice as long as the front.

I wrapped the body lightly with fine mono for strength before coating with Loon hardbody and then docorated with pantone pen.

Eyes are rattle doll-eyes.



I'm going to tie a few up with weed-guards also.
