Flymen Fishing Company comes to aid of tyers

Article Media Click images to enlarge +

Flymen Fishing Company has made the fly tyer’s life easier with its new Nymph-Head Articulated Wiggle Tail Shank.

Fly tiers have been tying Wiggle Tails for many years by cutting off the bend of a hook in order to get a shank upon which to tie and attach the tail to another hook.

But now the Flymen Fishing Company has made the tyer’s life easier with its new Nymph-Head Articulated Wiggle Tail Shank. The Wiggle-Tail Shank is simply a ready-to-tie shank that eliminates the need – and cost – of ‘sacrificing a hook’ and is also flexible enough to be used for a wide range of fly sizes.

The Articulated WiggleTail Shank offers a convenient way to tie articulated ‘wiggle-tails’ or rear body sections on nymphs, emergers, small streamers and even dry flies.

Other key features listed by the manufacturer include:

  • A single product flexible enough for flies in the #6 to #18 hook size range;
  • The long shank is easily trimmed to the tail length needed to match the size of fly being tied;
  • By design the shank can be bent if a curved tail is desired on the fly;
  • Wire diameter thin enough to tie articulated flies as small as #18 and even light enough for dry flies.
