Very cool design Yorkie, thanks for sharing. Although the ones I saw had regular mesh netting, which is not as nice on fish slime. Maybe someone makes one with rubberized netting?

Riffling hitch for trout?

Just curious if anyone uses successfully a riffling hitch (Atlantic salmon surface tactic) to swing for trout? I'm thinking it could be fun, in the same way soft hackles are.

Any input?
