COLOURED ARTICULATED SHANKS™, designed for Intruder style, modern Salmon and Steelhead patterns- an innovative, new fly tying material, created by the Flymen Fishing Company of Charlotte, North Carolina, USA, designed in conjunction with Greg Senyo of Steelhead Alley Outfitters.
They can be used as a simple component in different styles of articulated flies such as single-hook and two-hook articulated streamers, poppers and sliders.
The shanks are constructed from Stainless Steel and are avilable in FIVE vibrant anodized colours.
Why use these new shanks compared to the originals?
Both shanks work very well, but Senyo's Articulated Shank has been designed with special features that modern steelhead and salmon fly tiers have been asking for.
The most significant of these is having a loop up-eye at the front of the shank, stronger wire, a slightly smaller rear loop and the choice of bright, vibrant shank colours that enable fly tiers to take the colour blending of materials to a whole new level.
See below for Intruder Wire to colour match your shanks.
