So what is the difference between the handmade Voon Frog and other frog lures that come from Thailand? The first is that it features a ball bearing. So what you may ask? Most of the Thai Jump Frogs have this feature as well. The difference is that the bearing in the Voon Frog, is enclosed in a plastic chamber inside the lure, while other lures have the bearing inside a cavity within the lure. The plastic chamber enhances the rattling of the ball bearing, enticing even the wariest of the finned species to take a bite.
The maker of the Voon Frogs, personally handcrafts each lure and tests it for castability and swim action before finishing it off in a variety of colors. The Voon Frogs can be worked in a variety of different ways, the simplest and most common method is to cast beyond a fish rise and crank it back at moderate speed. That should be able to get you a fish or two.

"The Voon Jump Frog is well balanced and has great casting action. It also pops consistently. The rattling of the ball bearing inside the plastic chamber, is a pure stroke of genius. This enhanced rattling, attracts the fish and provokes the fish into biting." -Bkkguy John
