Based upon the original Articulated Shank created by Flymen Fishing Company in 2011, the Articulated Big Game Shank from Blane Chocklett is optimized for both strength and fly length allowing you to tie big flies that can hook, hold and land large, predatory game-fish.
* Heavier gauge wire that can handle more materials and hold bigger fish.
* Extended length, with oversized front and back loops for bigger hooks.
* Offset front and back loops for interconnectivity.
* Three lengths: 28mm (1 1/8”), 40mm (1 5/8”) and 80mm (3 1/8”).
* Stainless steel for saltwater flies.
One of the most exciting developments in modern fly fishing is that our equipment (fly rods, reels, line, tippet and larger flies) now enable anglers to target almost any fish species previously considered nearly impossible to land with a fly rod. Even marlin and sailfish are now regularly being targeted and caught using fly rods!
Generally in freshwater, the Big Game Shank will be used for tying large flies to target predator species such as musky, pike, peacock bass, golden dorado, tiger fish and larger lake trout.
Generally in saltwater, the Big Game Shank will be used for tying large flies to target predator species such as barracuda, striped bass, roosterfish , or Spanish mackerel, and offshore species such tuna, sailfish, and mahi-mahi, just to name a few.
There are three sizes: 28mm (1 1/8”), 40mm (1 5/8”) and 80mm (3 1/8”) lengths
There are twenty x 28mm shanks per pack, sixteen x 40mm shanks per pack and twelve x 80mm shanks per pack
