If you enjoy tying Game Changer style flies but get frustrated with tying the tail section, the new Tail Shank is the solution you’ve been looking for.
The Tail Shank is the newest addition to the Fish-Skull Articulated Fish-Spine system and is designed to simplify and improve the tail tying process.
We’ve essentially modified the design of a Fish-Spine shank by removing the rear loop and replacing it with a tag, which is to be used as an easy way for you to place the Tail Shank in your fly tying vise.
Now, rather than having to try the difficult process of tying around the rear loop of a shank or modifying the shank by cutting part of it off, you can easily tie a neater tail with more taper using the Tail Shank.
If you follow the link below, you can also watch a video in which Blane Chocklett walks you through how to tie a Game Changer fly tail on the new Tail Shank.
