    Guys, my good friend Rob Meade has some new flies out that are being done by Rainy’s.

    They are both totally weedless. I think the Gutless Frog will be great on your bass (first two photo’s).

    But what about the Shuffler – does it have redfish written on it?

    Best Regards,

    Beechy

    I saw the Gutless Frog in Bass Pro not to long ago (spending wonderful gift cards). It looks like a good design idea, the only thing for me is that in my experience the best frog patterns don’t really dive or wiggle. Instead they rather just move across the top creating a good wake. Now I am not saying that those things won’t nail some bass. What I am saying is that in the areas where I would throw that fly to imatate a frog is in very tight thick cover such as weed and lilly pads. The problem is not on the weedlessness of the hook but on the basic design on the frog. I need a cone shaped head so that I am not pulling a wad of weeds with me. If I do that its game over. With that change I feel it would be great.

    I think however that they would work great as it is over the flats for bass in the evenings. The thing about that though is that I like to cover alot of water so I want soemthing that is realatively easy to cast. Something like a stealth bomber. One trick that
