Flymen Fishing Company has launched some new products at the International Fly Tackle Dealer show. I have already posted about their Fly Tester, so I do not link to it in this article. Just scroll down FrankenFly to read more about the Tester. See below to read about the other new products from them.

These new Flymen Fishing Company products are now available for dealer pre-order and will start shipping by the end of July, 2014.
NEW FLY TYING PRODUCTS:
Nymph-Head® Evolution Beadhead
Nymph-Head® Evolution™is a family of tungsten fly-tying beads molded in the natural shape, size and colors of the heads of the three most common aquatic insects that trout feed upon and which fly fishermen attempt to imitate, namely mayflies, stoneflies and caddisflies.
The four Nymph-Head® Evolution family members consist of:
- The Evolution Mayfly Swimmer & Burrower beadhead
- The Evolution Mayfly Clinger & Crawler beadhead
- The Evolution Stonefly beadhead
- The Evolution Caddis beadhead
Moving beyond the traditional round bead…the Nymph-Head® Evolution™ beadhead allows fly tiers to tie nymphs that not only sink quickly, but have a more anatomically correct profile and head-size relative to the insect’s body.
- Tungsten for fast sinking flies
- More Realistic Fly Profile (mayfly, stonefly, caddis)
- Natural Fly Colors (brown, black, olive)
- Up to five sizes (XS, S, M, L, XL)
- Premium quality retail packaging with MSRP $7.45

Fish-Skull® Articulated Fish Spine™
Released in 2013, the Fish-Skull® Articulated Fish-Spine™ is an innovative system of interconnected, articulated shanks that combine to form a multi-jointed, “fish spine” upon which incredibly animate and realistic baitfish patterns can be tied. In addition to the original Starter Pack, we NOW expand this product to offer all four shank sizes individually packaged which enables fly tiers to purchase the specific sizes of shank they need.
- Sizes 10mm, 15mm, 20mm & 25mm.
- Tapered, daisy-chain effect creates life-like action.
- Stainless steel for saltwater flies.
- Individual shank size packs (24 shanks) MSRP 7.95.
- Starter pack (6-8 spines/ 24 shanks) MSRP $9.50
Nymph-Head® Evolution™ Fly Collection:
The first in a series of next generation nymphs tied with the new Evolution™ tungsten beadheads. Anatomically shaped tungsten heads combined with natural colors make these flies irresistible. MSRP $4.95 per 3-fly box.
NH Evolution™ Fly Collection Product information:
“We are really excited about launching our new line of products today! Both the Fly Tester™ and Evolution™ Beadhead demonstrate our company’s single-minded focus on designing and introducing innovative, ‘next generation’ fly tying materials and flies,” said Martin Bawden, CEO of Flymen Fishing Company.
“Under the theme of ‘Design Better Flies,’ the Fish-Skull® Fly Tester™ is the first readily available, out-of-box solution for fly testing and demonstration. The ability to ‘Test’ fills the critical gap that exists between tying a new fly that looks great in your vise and then going fishing with the hope it works!”
Bawden also commented: “The Nymph-Head® Evolution tungsten beadhead represents the natural progression (evolution) of the traditional round fly tying bead. The combined benefits of having a more realistic insect profile, natural fly colors and fast-sinking tungsten now enables fly fishermen to create a whole new generation of better beadhead nymphs.
“Building on the success of the Articulated Fish Spine™ launched a year ago, we are responding to customer demand to offer the different sizes of shanks in individual retail packs. This allows fly fishermen to purchase the specific sizes they need for their Game Changer style flies instead of having to buy the full Starter Pack each time.”
