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
from Central VA
"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."

"25 Casts each time landing upside down. It did have a real life appearance in the water except the wrong side up."

"if bass will not take a fly on the top try a weighted fly.i throw a #1/0 mostly with a bug taper #9 line and an access 8wt rod"
"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!"
