Nice work. Are these all carved or are you casting these from resin? I like how you incorporated the tympanum behind the eye. I especially like the green with black spots but the one in the middle in the first pic in your last set of pics is especially nice.

I have to say those look much better than the ones I've seen in the Dicks.

Much, much better.

What are the weights on those?

Thank you sir for the kind words, no resin for me, all wood , bandsaw, knife , dremel and sanding 

Etch 

Been doing the hand carve thing myself recently. That's a lot of work. Its one way to reduce the number of plugs you tend to amass when turning them. The time it takes me to do one hand carved I could turn 20 plugs. Maintaining symmetry is time consuming.

Also, I see you are using trebles

Have you tried using double hook instead?

 

Yes sir, I actually alternate them ,some frogs I have a belly treble,  double hook at the back,some both trebles,  some both double hooks, have it all covered for what I need to fish
