The Articulated Shank™is an innovative, new fly tying item, created by the Flymen Fishing Company of Charlotte, North Carolina, USA 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, poppers and sliders. It is also used for streamers that use a free-swinging stinger hook such as Intruder-style salmon and steelhead flies.

The small shanks are ideal for wiggle tailed damsel and Lure patterns.

  • Easy-and-fast tying process.
  • Increases tail action - Increases the overall fly length.
  • Reduces the leverage a hooked fish typically places on a fly.
  • Eliminates the need to "sacrifice a hook" to make a shank (cutting off the hook at the bend).
  • 3 Shank lengths (20mm, 35mm and 55mm)
  • 20 Shanks per pack
  • 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 Helmets
  • The high strength, stainless spring steel shank can be used in saltwater.
