Gurgler style frog, 2020-03-25

Micheal S. gave me a larger version of this frog, and the bass completely destroyed it. I tinkered with the pattern until I could get the tying down to less than 5 minutes, and here is the result: Hook:  Size 6 Mustad 3366A Thread: 240 denier thread to match under-body Over-body: 3mm closed cell foam cut to 1/2" wide Legs: Flat rubber legs, 4 strand wide, and 1 strand Under-body: Chenille, yarn, etc. Eyes: 4mm dolls eyes Glue:  Craft glue or CA Markers for finishing touches.

Kevin Hutchison shares popper head assembly and painting, videos

The object of this series is to show some ideas, and cost savings, when making popper heads. None of the products mentioned are the absolute “best” to buy, or use, but mentioned to only give you some ideas. The basic approach to this fly was originally published by Jay "Fishy" Fullum as the “single fold popper” in his book Fishy’s Flies, ISBN 0-8117-2616-9. Kevin has made some modifications. Most notably is the thickness of the foam, 6mm instead of 4mm. Another noted modification is a slit in the foam for the dogleg of the hook to rest in. http://hillcountryflyfishers.com/
