The Gurgling Frog is an adaptation of the Gartside Gurgler style foam head and body, with a bit more movement added along with a small frog theme. It's simple to tie, extremely durable and very effective. The versions to be tied are limited only to your imagination. But this one, is a winner and remains in my box. Plop it down on the edges of the lilies...let it sit for a moment...give it a short 1" twitch to add life...let it sit again...then begin a 2-strip retrieve with a pause in between. More often than not, it gets taken on the first small twitch.
