Senyo's Articulated Shank are Specialized shanks for articulated freshwater and saltwater steelhead and salmon flies.
Co-designed by Greg Senyo
Greg Senyo is a prominent steelhead and salmon expert who has designed many leading fly tying materials. Specialized for use in intruder-style and other modern steelhead and salmon flies, Senyo's shanks have sought-after features such as a loop-up eye at the front of the shank, stronger stainless steel wire, and a slightly smaller rear loop. Bright, vibrant colors enable you to take the color blending of materials to a whole new level.
To make the most of the possibilities of Senyo's Shanks, read his highly anticipated recent book - Fusion Fly Tying: Steelhead, Salmon, and Trout Flies of the Synthetic Era - for 36 patterns that'll push your comfort zone and teach you to combine modern and traditional fly tying styles.
Quick and easy to tie
Senyo's Shank is held straight in any vise, avoiding the need to tie the fly at strange angles. This allows you to easily attach a free-swinging stinger hook or do a direct hook-to-shank connection using the rear loop.
Keeping with traditional salmon and steelhead flies.
Small rear loop
Allows you to attach hooks directly onto the shank.
For saltwater use.
