    Hectic, nicely done, can see your inner Art Lure Angler coming out there. Judging by the pupils it's definitely a Capetonian frog, but at least it appears to be crab free, for now...

    Cool Shammers ! Nice tie.

    Similar to the gutless frog pattern tied by Rob Meade.

    You might like to incorporate some of the weedless idea into your tying - do away with the weed guard all together.
    They are relatively easy to tie and don't snag up at all.

    Good luck mate.

    Bass will love that 😎

    What I have experimented with a little while back is to tie the frog on an upside down bass stinger hook, (think 5/0 Owner hook for plastics) you straighten the neck a little bit and position your foam so as to allow a bit of the bend to act as keel for the fly. It's a more complex tie and for my money then you may just as well gooi one of those proper double hooked bass frogs, but it definitely aids in keeping it weedless and because of how the bass take the fly in relation to how you will strike to get the hookset, it's very effective ito ensuring a proper hookset through the top of the jaw.

    Shammers, nice tie! I reckon that will graft....

    Remarkable likeness to the one of the characters from Gremlins...
