So fly tyers are starting to get their hands on the new Flymen Fishing Articulated Fish-Spine. Here are some of the first flies coming out of tyer’s vises.
Marcelo Morales tied this rainbow trout.
John Collins tied this striped version using a sculpin helmet.
John Collins then went with the Fish Skull. He’s calling this one the “Read End” Rabbit since it has a hook riding in the tail.
Philippe Rossolin tied this baby peacock bass using Enrico Puglisi products and Congo Hair.
This one came from Casters Fly Shop. You can see the segmentation.
Casey Ryan put this one together. He used CCT body fur to create the body and yellow streamer hackle for the tail to imitate the yellow tail of the threadfin shad.
Mark DeFrank used Hareline Ice Dub & Glo Bug Yarn to create this look. This would make an excellent goby imitation.
Mike Schmidt tied this little guy as soon as he got his hands on the new spines.
Dougie Loughridge tied this big pike fly and it didn’t scare this brave little pike!
It will be interesting to see what will be created with these new Fish-Spines in the future. There are a lot of possibilities with this new product and tyers are just now starting to tap into them. There should be some stunning new flies coming within the next year!
