I made a frog fly for bass and went out last week to test it. Every time it hit the water the bluegill were on it like a school of piranha. The 2/0 hook made it impossible to catch one. I went back to my bench and downsized to a size 10 hook. I went back Monday and caught (and released)well over 100. Sometimes I’d catch 8 in a row. 3 in a row was common. The most effective fly I have ever made.

Conclusion: Bluegill love baby frogs!

I wanted to add a pic of the fly but I’m using an IPhone.

If possible, please post a picture and recipe of it in the fly tying section...or here if you prefer. I'd like to experiment a little with that. Thanks.

Nice post. I get a personal enjoyment catching a fish on a bait that I have made. I do not tie a lot of flies but I am getting into it a little more. I also have made some small crank baits that have gotten some good results! hooked Again nice post and glad you got some fish on your flies. woot

I have an IPhone 6 and I’ve tried every way I know to post my photos but it won’t let me. If anyone knows how I can do it please tell me.

After chatting with Apple support, the only way to convert my photos is to upload to a computer. At the moment I don’t have a computer. I always thought Apple had everything covered but this seems like a big oversight on their part.

I Hope this images works.

The legs are cut out of latex sheet and the body is foam.
