A small series of hitch flies designed to resemble fleeing baitfish
The Riffling Hitch Sunray Shadow Gold is one of three tiny Sunray Shadow flies that we have turned into hitch flies – They also double as micro sub-flies and they will work perfectly in fast water –
The slim black wing made from specially selected goat and the colourful body will give the fish an immediate impression of a tiny baitfish darting away.
This small shiny version of the Sunray Shadow has a total length of 70 millimetres (2.75 inches) – the Tube length is a mere 20 millimetres (0.78 inches) to a # 6 – 4 hook-fly

Delicate micro flies perfected to trail in the surface
All Fishmadman hitch tube flies is based on the same clever system that will enable you to fish with different hooks.
The line is entered through a hole in the belly or side of the fly – This will make the fly pull to the surface and wake. Due to the design of the tube system, the fly will hitch with ease even in slack water – We use fine hair from small squirrel as this has proven to be unrivalled material for these subtle micro wake flies.
Probably the best hitch tubing – ever made…
We think we have the right to brag… when we say the best tubing ever made. All other tubing found in fly tying shops could not live up to our expectation. Together with a chemical engineer, we developed a new PVC-free plastic formula for the solemn purpose of producing a tube for riffling hitch.
- It will withstand a lot of mechanical wear
- Very low memory – This will ensure that the tube fall back into place after use (hook removed)
- Will work in a wide range of temperatures including frost cold days.
This is the same tube we use for our wake flies and other bigger tube flies. See the tube in our shop
