Flymen Articulated Fish Spines. Articulated flies aren't a new concept but the Fish Spine sure made it simpler and more cost effective. Carl Richards and Doug Swisher revealed a series of flies in Selective Trout in the early 70's. The Fish-Skull® Articulated Fish-Spine™ is an innovative system of interconnected, articulated shanks that combine to form a multi-jointed “fish spine” upon which incredibly animate and realistic baitfish patterns can be tied. The Fish-Spine was co-developed with Blane Chocklett who is one of the fly fishing industry’s most forward thinking and innovative fly tiers. By daisy-chaining a series of articulated shanks, Blane conceived of a way to impart incredibly realistic action into baitfish patterns that has until now been impossible to achieve. Multi-jointed “swim flies” with ultra-real action!

No more bending your own shanks or sacrificing hooks to get more action from your lures.Nice strong shanks that are easy to work with,and will never fail when dragging in the big one.
Looking forward to some lighter versions from flymen,this would make damsel fly nymphs irresistible to fish.
