    fresh grilse/salmon definitely have a tendency to hit a lure /bait broadside, I had a great day on the Itchen some years ago, a few missed takes very early on before the light got up left me scratching my head, but once the light was right, I could see the fish attacking the bait in the middle, a quick adjustment and 8 fish landed 1 lost at the net. I have no doubt that the standard trailing hook set up would nail the fish on the dangle, but the takes on the swing might well result in a near miss, or hooking outside the mouth, would it be legal too fish two singles in tandem??? The tube type intruder tying might be better for Atlantics, the short versions, where a couple could be used together looks like a very appealing prospect, endless colour combo,s to play with, and the ability to adjust hook positions with various sizes of spacer pieces of tube between the fly and hook, plenty to play with for sure!!!!

I've seen some pictures of battered lures that clearly show a pattern on bite marks to confirm this. Would it not be more effective to fish the hook in the middle of a very long fly for the same reasons?
    Yes I have seen this rig it is called "A Tay Rig" believe it or not here is a youtube link which is interesting . go to about 3.30 in to the clip

    Ok this might be the whisky talking but how about an April tube system with a hook between the front tube and the back tube with the nylon for the rear tube off the front hook eye?
    Or just a shank with no hook for the rear, so the one hook is in the middle of two tubes?

    Living with deep, full breaths is the way of the trout. Fish, it seems, are the ultimate teachers in breathing.

    I have seen salmon taking autumn leafs before so you may well be in with a chance with that creation.
