    Default New streamer fly product

    A new product for the flytyer. I don't see why a streamer fisherman would not love this:

    What about a loop of 30 lb. mono and a strand of lead wire against a needle with some superglue, tie on the fiber and remove the needle?

    OK, so what is the product? The articulated shanks? The brush material? I'd might be sold, if the video explained exactly what, how and why, instead of jumpy effects and annoying music. I guess I'm turning into a grumpy old man.

    The action of the "fly" was cool though.

    It's really easy to make a jig to make this sort of thing yourself. All you need is some dowel and nails. I keep looking at the new "Intruder Shanks" etc. that have come on the market. They are just a re invention of the Waddington Shank. Yes the first waddington shanks were made from paper clips.

    Hap mentioned in another thread that those shanks do not hold up too well and are not to be trusted in his neck of the woods. I have mixed feelings about the pre-cut tails, but might try them one of these days...however, there are so many other patterns that do not require me to buy their moderately expensive product, it might be a while...might have to try to cut my own of these days before even that...
