Topwater fishing is as frustrating as it is exciting because of missed hookups, and fishing with artificial frogs takes the gold when it comes to swings and misses.

The topwater amateur misses fish because he swings too early, while the wily vet knows he has to fight the urge to swing on the splash, but sometimes he can wait TOO long.

Sebile looks to put an end to this with its new Pivot Frog which features an extra-soft body that easily collapses when bitten. It also strays away from the two-hook frog that traditional frogs are equipped with, and instead has a pivoting 6/0 wide-gap hook that increases the gap between the body and the hook point for cleaner hook sets and snag-free fishing.

It's a bargain at $6.95 and will be available in September of 2014.
