    my concern is that the one u talking about has a trailing hoof and the bodys probly soft,so when the fish bites it the body compresses and allows the front hook to penetrate(the frogs i posted do this)now if its a hard body then surely the hook up cant be good cos the hook point isnt standing proud enough...

    Werner plse explain why anyone should be ashamed of being a bass fisherman with conventional bass gear?, you think flyfishing is superior to any other form of fishing?

    Stephen remember we're talking spesifically LM bass here, I'm sure for other species of fish the hookup won't be great, but with Lm taking the whole fly in it's mouth, the moment it closes the hook pushes up and without any obstruction into the lip, I think the hookup might even be better than on some normal baitfish imitations where a big part of the gape is closed with materials, deerhair heads come to mind. But as I said only time and testing will tell will keep you updated
