An innovative system of interconnected, articulated shanks that combine to form a multi-jointed fish spine. Creates incredibly animated and realistic baitfish patterns. Use the shanks with CCT body fur to tie the Game Changer fly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from life-like action I recently purchased the articulated fish spines and I was very pleased with the results. My warning would be that it doesn't give you swim bait action on retrieve. Reminds me of a fluke with the added action of the tail kicking to start the movement. Dynamite movement from that standpoint. I added some weight to the hook to get the falling motion of a fluke. I recommend trying it.
