Tie animated baitfish patterns with ultra-lifelike action.
Co-designed with Blane Chocklett.
Blane Chocklett is one of the fly fishing industry’s most forward-thinking and innovative fly tyers. Essentially a tapered daisy-chain, the Fish-Spine is a series of specifically-designed articulated shanks that allow you to create multi-jointed, highly articulated streamers, such as the revolutionary Blane Chocklett Signature Fly Collection.
To tie your own Game Changer, simply combine the Fish-Spine with Chocklett's Game Changer Chenille or Finesse Chenille and ultra-realistic Fish-Skull® Living Eyes™ and Kona Big Game Hunter hooks
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.
