Russian Twitch KIT

It's that design you WISHED you would have purchased and then it was gone.  A lot of our designs are like that.  We only keep them in stock for a limited amount of time and then we're onto something new.  The RUSSIAN TWITCH was such a popular design we've brought it back offering a total of 12 kits for sale. 

There's been a couple of changes to the kit contents.  First, we've included a complete pound of cane with this design.  That way if you decide to make the RUSSIAN TWITCH taller you have that option without being afraid of running out of material.  Also, the original indian pigtail handle is no longer available (company out of business) so we've replaced it with a mountain swing handle.

If you loved it  before and want to weave another one up or you missed out the first time it was offered now is the time to grab a kit.  

Russian Twitch?  What's with that name?  In Alaska during the summer months you'll find lots of fisherman along the Russian River looking to hook into a nice salmon.  Salmon usually don't hit a lure when coming up to spawn in the rivers.  Most Alaskan's know that it takes a certain wrist action to coax a salmon unto the line known to the locals as the "Russian River Twitch".   Figuring out this pattern made my eyes twitch for a while until it clicked.  Since the basket was from a Russian inspired design it became the Russian Twitch.

Double Walled basket.  Twill pattern in cane and reed.  Oak swing handle.

APPROXIMATE DIMENSIONS:  12" H  to rim of basket X 8" D at rim.  18" in height with handle
