Nymph Head Articulated Wiggle Tail Shank

$3.50 pkg


Nymph Head Articulated Tail Shanks offer a convenient way to tie articulated “wiggle-tails” or rear body sections on nymphs, emergers, small streamers and even dry flies! Nymph Head Articulated Tail Shanks are 20mm in length and come 20 per package.

Key Features:

  • This simple product eliminates the need to “sacrifice a hook” to get a shank.
  • A single product flexible enough for flies in the #6 to #18 hook size range.
  • The long shank is easily trimmed to the tail length needed to match the size of fly being tied.
  • By design the shank can be bent if a curved tail is desired on the fly.
  • Wire diameter thin enough to tie articulated flies as small as #18 and even light enough for dry flies.
