"Hi-Ho Everyone..."

... Kermit the Frog here.

While messing around at the bench this evening, I came upon a frog pattern. I have no doubt that someone's come up with something like this before, though I've never seen anything quite like it.

So it's a tube fly popper, built on a 3/4" diameter piece of live body, cut and sanded to appear like a frog's head. The paint job is Prismacolor to imitate a northern leopard frog. I coated the head with 5-minute epoxy, which made the eyes (epoxy eyes) look a bit more bulbous (like natural frog's eyes). The body is ostrich herl, flash, white and olive marabou, and red zonker palmered. This one's going to use a 3/0 TMC 811S.

So, point me towards the pike...
