Cod – Chaffey Dam and Peel River
Try Purple and Brown colours and take a sinking line to get the flies down deep.
I don’t have specific tying instructions for either but with some 2 or 3mm sheet foam, plastic eyes and silly legs the shuffler is not too hard to tie.
Little lengths of tube can be used to glue on the eyes. The tube can be secured just behind the eye of the hook and used to wrap the foam to form the head.
It seems getting the barb hole in the right place is the only tricky bit. Purple and Brown seem to be popular colours.
The gutless frog is even easier with Gap Filler Rod in 6mm from Bunnings, some silly legs, plastic eyes, super glue and a variety of coloured marker pens – make your frog the right colour!
The closest I could find was this video – so the main difference is to use the gap filler rod and glue the rod together half way down the hook – from the eye – leaving the gutless bit around the barb.
