Orvis Ratings and Reviews

Classic Frog

Just what it says it is. A very classic frog fly pattern profile of spun deer hair for great buoyancy and surface disturbance. A bit smaller than the other patterns for use on smaller fly rods. Perfect for a five weight. Will draw strikes for sure. Frog fly pattern in natural. In sizes: 6, 8.

A River Frog,
June 24, 2015
By: kayakangler

"I bought the Frog fly to fish the River for smallies, but also use it for ponds and lakes for large mouth bass. I have had great success with the fly and always try to keep a half dozen in the fly box.
We spend our time kayak fishing and imagine my surprise while floating the Upper James when a four foot Gar destroyed one of these beauties while throwing it with a 6wt Helios. That was a great afternoon, and the battle on that rod was one for the fireside.
I would have given the frogs a five star rating, but after four or five big bass chewing on them they tend to lose a leg or two, and then you have to replace them. But... you HAVE caught four or five big bass... LOL."

Almost appealing to smallmouths,
June 14, 2011
By: flyfisher101
from Charlotte, NC
"I went to Orvis before my trip to the Tennessee mountains in search of flies to use for some large waterways and even lakes. I got 3 of these flies and was impressed by the quality of them, so I threw them into my fly box. When I got there there were about 5 smallmouth bass in a cove that followed my fly around constantly for hours, but did not seem to want to bite it. I wonder what the deal was? Anyway it kept the fish coming, so a well worth purchase from orvis!"
