Fish-Skull Next Generation Articulated Shank (NGS) range represents the next generation of articulated shanks with a focus on improved functionality and ease of use. Now also available 20 mm Exchanger Shank (ESH) that allows you to connect-and-disconnect shanks at will after the fly is tied to replace sections of your fly, for example tails. Also used to connect articulated bodies to front hook
The NGS range provides a single, improved design across the full range of shank sizes making it easier for fly tyers create and tie better, more effective articulated flies such as the Game Changer style flies. The design improvements offer significant advantages over previous shank models.
Fish-Skull Next Generation Articulated Shank (NGS) features:
Triangular Rear Loop: Reduces the gap between interconnected shanks by pulling the shanks closer together resulting in flies with tighter, more integrated bodies. Triangular shape is easier for the jaws of the vise to grip and hold the shank, especially important with the smaller size shanks.
Loop eye: Stronger than a ring eye, the loop eye eliminates chance of shank failure enabling you to land bigger, stronger fish.
Extended Wire tags: The “tag end” of the shanks are now extended to run the full length of the shank. This means there are now 3 parallel wire strands creating an even base platform to wrap the thread and materials along the entire length of the shank. Makes it easier to wrap, more precise and overall, much stronger shank.
Single Design: Easier for fly tyers to better understand the articulation concept and tie better, more effective articulated flies across the full spectrum of fly sizes.
