Our Articulated Shanks receive the same meticulous attention to detail as our Stinger Shanks. They are made from stainless steel to prevent rust and blackened for a classic look. The front eye has been left small enough so it looks good on the finished fly. They are 25mm long, which we have found the most useful length for large steelhead and chinook patterns. They are a good alternative to the classic Stinger Shank and Loop setup that is used for standard Intruder styles. The interconnecting shanks will allow you to create a highly mobile pattern at any length you like, while leaving the hook at the rear of the pattern.
