Time to Shank It Up...Shank It, Shank It, Sugaree
http://www.flymenfishingcompany.com/ for details. I was able to get some time to fool around with these and fish them. They take a little getting use to, but I like the end result for sure....especially if you like to tie intruders! My biggest dilema was judging the trailer length for the hook, but that one can be chalked up to trial and error. Now to the fishing. I took most of the warmwater species on the black and silver shank fly and a few on the hinged dace fly. The most missed fish came on the black and silver and I relate that directly to the length of the trailer hook. I can't wait to try these on the chrome this fall. Look for more to come from me with both the shanks and another new product from Flymen Fishing Company very soon!!!
