PM has revealed one of the deadliest secrets have uleashed some powerful medicine.

Before I started tying on tubes I used the equivalent on steel shanked hooks.....known as the riffling hitch.

It is absolutely deadly on fish that come short to the waking or skated fly......if the fish comes short....switch to the riffled hitch and they will almost always come with reckless abandon on the next pass as long as they have not felt the steel. The grab will often straighten ones arm

Thanks for revitalizing the riffled hitch for me, now I can apply it to the tubes as well

best regards.


Tight Lines and Screaming Reels!!!
