Russian Twitch KIT

 PLEASE NOTE HANDLE CHANGE BEFORE PURCHASING 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 awhile until it clicked.  Since it was from a Russian inspired design it became the Russian Twitch.

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

PLEASE NOTE:  Due to the current unavailability of the Indian Pig tail handle shown above we have changed to a mountain swing handle for this design.
