Discovering The Hitch

North Esk 29th July 2021

With the water level falling rapidly and nothing else working on a hot muggy day I decided that I might give this “hitch fly” a swim.

After adding one “Micro Hitch Fly” the results were quick and violent! just a pity that I couldn’t hold onto what was clearly a big fish after it tore off downstream like a train!

Yes in hindsight there are a few learning points here that ‘might’ have increased the odds in my favour but nevertheless a very exciting way to fish and one that I will be using again.
