Frödinflies Hitch Flies - We all love that broad backed salmon chasing our little fly’s track on the surface. To hitch, on the surface can be deadly effective. sometimes it’s the only method that really works. Frödinflies' staff are fortunate to have among their friends some of the best hitch anglers in the world. Their important advice is to tie the flies so they make as small wake as possible. Frödinflies use a quite thin tubing and make sure to put the wing on top and a hole each side. This gives a narrow profile and a small wake. Hitch flies can be really small, so small you don’t think salmon see it, but they come for the wake, that’s what triggers them.
- Slim profile
- Holes on sides for the leader
- No cones for easy skating
- Creates a small wake
- As simple as effective
- Please note that the flies with genuine junglecock feathers in the pictures are in reality tied of synthetic substitute which allows you to travel abroad with the flies.
Black Simple Hitch
Maybe the best hitch fly of them all. The thin tapered wing strengthens the impression and make the small V on the surface irresistible. It might be hard to get why, but the orange head seem to make the fly even better. We have taken hundreds of salmon on this little simple fly. Mikael fish them in almost all sizes. Try it and let it make your day too!
Green Simple Hitch
The simple hitch for really clear water. A favorite which has given great catches in Iceland, Russia and on many Norwegian rivers. When Mikael prefers a decent size hitch on the very clear river this is the choice. Mikael fish it square and sometimes pull it across. On the clear river the fish like the fast fly, or they will see it too long. Be prepared – the takes will be memorable for sure.
A fantastic little fly for clear days on the clear river. Hitched or fished right under the surface this version is excellent. This version is of course influenced by the hitch flies of Iceland. Fish it like them, extremely small, micro hitch, on the clear river and you will be amazed how effective the little fly can be.
With its translucent behavior, this little fly seems to be extra interesting for the tricky fish. The less they see the more they want it. Frödin normally fish this smaller than the Green Simple Hitch, maybe it’s for me more of a low water summer fly. Anyway, it’s for clear water, and maybe best when it blends in on the “blue river”.
Works best in the dusk or preferably on a cloudy day. The great contrast helps it stick out and give a good impression. Frödin used to fish it on an orange tubing, but this more discrete silvery version is maybe better. For the dusk, we believe that the glow tubing adds to the impression and gives the best dusk hitch fly in Mikael's box. In tricky conditions try it fairly big.
