Fair Flies customizable shanks feature one end with a round eye and the other end with a return eye, set 90 degrees from each other. Articulated flies anyone? A full 52mm allows you to tie long or short, as you desire! The matte finish on the stainless steel shank lets the thread grip the shank with maximum friction, a bond so tight your hook will bend before the wire will slide off the shank when properly tied.
The wires are mono-coated stainless steel for durability, even in saltwater. They have the perfect balance of flex and rigidity so your hook flows realistically behind your fly every time. Plus, the pre-shaped crimp and bend allows for easy alignment of your hook and shank as you tie. These wires will thread the eye of your hook without a problem. Wire diameter is .018", or .46mm.
Finally, a shank and wire combo that works. See detailed instructions inside your packages. Produced by Stealth, Innovation pioneered by Fair Flies. One dozen shanks, one dozen pre-formed wires. Hooks are not included.
