Fishing the Baby Popping Frog Bream and Bass Fly
Our "Perfect Fly" Baby Popping Frog Bass and Bream Fly is an imitation of a frog that
floats and creates a disturbance on the surface. It's for largemouth and smallmouth bass
and big bream. This fly has taken some huge bream for some of our customers. The
Baby Popping Frog has a concave front that allows it to making a popping noise similar to
a popping bug. This sound attracts bass and bream. This is a great deer hair frog fly.
This bass and bream fly has a nylon weed guard that prevents it from hanging in weeks
and grass. When you set the hook, set it hard and firm. It's best fished on a stiff, medium
to fast action fly rod that's at least a 4 weight. Most anglers prefer a 6 weight floating line
and fly rod for largemouth and smallmouth bass and a 4 or 5 weight line for big bream.
The Baby Popping Frog fly works best when it is presented near heavy cover where the
bass and bream hide and attack their prey. Grass beds of ell grass, hydrilla, milfoil and
other aquatic vegetation provides an excellent habitat for both bass and bream. Logs,
both submerged and floating, tree tops and bushes in the water provide excellent hiding
places for bass and big bream and is exactly where you need to cast the Baby Popping
Frog. The fly is especially effective when worked in water over the tops of grass beds.
When the fly first hits the water allow it to sit for several seconds before moving it. When
you first move it, do so easily and slowly. Move the fly two or three inches using short
jerks of the fly line and let it sit again. If repeating this action doesn't produce, use a
much more deliberate type of action. Make the fly pop enough to get the attention of
nearby bass and bream. Pause the fly a few seconds and continue to repeat the sit and
The Baby Popping Frog fly is most effective when the water temperature is in the sixties
to mid seventies. It works best during the hot summer when fished very early and late in
the day. It works during the Spring pre-spawn period and during the Fall. It is one of the
very best deerhair bass and bream flies.
