Fish Skull Articulated Shank

articulated_shank_lg.jpg
The Articulated Shank™ is an innovative, new fly tying material designed to simplify the tying of articulated flies. It can be used as a simple component in different styles of articulated flies such as single-hook and two-hook articulated streamers and poppers. It is also used for streamers that use a free-swinging stinger hook such as Intruder-style salmon and steelhead flies.

  • Easy-and-fast tying process.
  • Increases tail action.
  • Increases the overall fly length.
  • Reduces the leverage a hooked fish places on a fly.
  • Eliminates the need to “sacrifice a hook” to make a shank.
  • 3 shank lengths.
  • Typically for streamer flies 3′′ (7.5cm) and longer.
  • Wire diameter fits hook sizes starting from about #4 up to 3/0.
  • Will fit the Fish-Skull™ (SM, M and L sizes) and the Fish-Skull™ Sculpin Helmet.
  • The high strength, stainless spring steel shank can be used in saltwater.
