Frogs. Spro Bronze eyes. Owt with the hooks coming out of the back and a large flat belly to land on the pads.

I use scum frogs, you can over cast them to the far margin, drag them back into the water,and away you go. Got a box set from America years ago.
Good selection on agm : http://www.agmdiscountfishing.co.uk/lures-soft-plastic-surface-lures-c-39_86.html

The type of frogs I use don't need a jig head, for their size,they're surprisingly weighty,got great casting ability. A gently flick sees them reaching the far bank. Then with the rod tip held up,give small upward taps to give the frog a slight hopping action. Seeing the wake coming right up behind the lure is fantastic.

Just shop around, I've seen people selling the ones I use for almost a tenner each. Amg= around 4quid a pop.
One thing I'll add, the ones I do use,they also make a popper version,I don't rate these too highly,as where the eye of the hook comes out the front of the lure,it lets a lot of water in,turning your lovely surface lure into a sub surface,which totally kills the action.

Been there lol! Cabelas was on my list of bankruptcy reasons king
I know it's been done on other forums,but should anyone want to make an order from America or overseas,then we could all chip in and order some bits we want. I'm well aware of the shipping costs,and other ways they try to get money out of you on postage.

Try a slopee pig - had many decent fish on these and the hook up rate is very good.
