Here is the step by step of my Frogolope which is consistently taking nice largemouth. The pattern has to take credit from the president of the Austin Fly Fishers Jim Gray who invented a fly called the Lanolope designed for topwater on the Lano river. I just bastardized it and turned it into a frog pattern
Mike



Hook: a Daiichi 2461 sizes 2-1.0 or a Partridge predator hook
Thread :black UTC
Tail: black antelope
Legs: knotted strands of rubber legs green or similar
Body: spun black antelope
Head: dense foam cylinders ˝ inch diameter
Front legs: as for the hind legs
Eyes: rattle doll eyes

Quite nice indeed!
Is there a list of advisable swears for use while trying to trim that hair around those rubber legs? smile

There you go again. Black Antelope bang

I'm still waiting for that Big foot neck hair tie roflmao

I like the idea of tying the knots in the rubber legs. I tried using silly legs instead of feathers in the past and they kept getting wrapped around the hook. That should help. Great tie, thanks for sharing thumb

You can substitute the antelope for deer hair in this pattern but then it would not be a Frogolope lol
