Electric Frog Popper

Nothing is more exciting in bass fishing than having a bass hit a surface popper. This bass popper is designed using foam to imitate small baitfish or frog. The pattern is airbrushed with a “electric charge" or "Lightening Strike” theme in mind. Don’t let this one of kind pattern fool you though, bass and other "Pez" predators will gladly hammer this one once it hits the surface. The pattern combines a strung hackle tail chartreuse marabou body, and a Mahi green/black rabbit strip for maximum movement. The howitzer head shape allows the fly to sit low on the surface while the large cupped mouth provides plenty of noise to imitate a struggling baitfish or amphibian on the surface. This is irresistible to fish for any fish lurking below the surface. This popper is finished with 2 coats of high quality epoxy to give off a polished look and ensure waterproof durability. This pattern has is tied on a size #6 hook, making it perfect for casting from the shoreline, a float tube, canoe, or small watercraft.

Casts should be made toward structure, weed beds, downed timber, or cattails near drop offs, or close to shore. These are favorite hiding places for bass and other predators. Let the popper sit until the splash ring disappears, then slowly work the popper with an erratic retrieve. Keep your trigger finger on the line, and get ready for a strike!
