Description The finest fish decoy that I have seen and of unusually large size. The frog is shown in mid leap extended. There is an eye ring at the top for a line and a rectangular lead weight
inset into the bottom to enable it to go down in the water and lure those muskie up from the bottom of the lake in the winter. Considering that it is a survivor and a prize. The paint has a crackled surface which works with a frogs natural patterning. It also has gold highlights and black glass eyes. Mounted over metal base. ex. Peter Brams collection.
