Fish Skull Articulated Shanks -
Simplify tying articulated flies and stop sacrificing extra hooks using these Fish Skull Articulated Shanks. Use them as a single component in different styles such as single-hook and two-hook articulated streamers, poppers and sliders. They are also ideal for streamers that use a free-swinging stinger hook, such as Intruder-style salmon and steelhead flies. Articulated shank increases tail action and overall fly length, while reducing the leverage a hooked fish places on a fly. The high-strength, stainless steel spring shank can be used in saltwater. Wire diameter fits hook sizes from #4 to 3/0. Fits the Fish Skull (S, M, and L sizes) and the Fish Skull Sculpin Helmets.
Sizes: 20mm, 35mm, 55mm.
This chassis aids in tying articulated streamers with single or double hooks, or stinger hooks. Articulated Shanks are an inexpensive alternative to Waddington shanks. Choose from three lengths. Package of 20. Made in USA .
