About the fly:

Richie designed the Frumpy Toad for all things that thrive in the freshwater Business in the front, and party in the back. The long legs provide movement while the split foam design gives a loud pop that attracts fish. The larger profile of this fly helps the fish find it in adverse conditions. You can confidently throw this around the structure, protected with a weed guard.
