Trailer Rigs! Shanks & Wires!

Get the set up, Keep the hook up!

Fair Flies customizable shanks feature one end with a round eye and the other end with a return eye, set 90 degrees from each other.  Articulated flies anyone?  A full 52mm allows you to tie long or short, at you desire!  Matte coating on the stainless steel shank lets the thread grip the shank with maximum friction, a bond so tight your hook will bend before the wire will slide off the shank when properly tied.  

The wires are mono-coated stainless steel for durability, even in saltwater.  They have the perfect balance of flex and rigidity, so your hook flows realistically behind your fly every time.  Plus, the pre-shaped crimp and bend allows for easy alignment of your hook and shank as you tie.  These wires will thread the eye of your hook without a problem.  

Finally, a shank and wire combo that works.

See detailed instructions inside your packages as needed. 

Produced by Stealth, Innovation pioneered by Fair Flies.

One dozen shanks, one dozen pre-formed wires.  Hooks not included.

Superior and absolutely dependable

I fished flies i tied on these shanks and wires rigged with #2 Gammie Octopus hooks just like i use for winter steelhead -- for albacore on five trips out of Pacific City in 2019. The pre-shaped wires are the easiest i have ever used, i never doubled the wire, and i fished these flies with #25 fluorocarbon leaders. My respect for these shanks and wires is un matched. I hooked many tuna on these flies, pulled very hard, and never had a wire bent by a fish or pulled loose. The only bent wires i experienced were due to my dory mates grab ing wire instead of hook in their pliers to extricate the hook. The shanks are heavier than offered by other vendors, and more similar to the Waddington Shanks i formerly used. Having wired pre-cut and pre-bent is an advantage when I want to tie quickly. I find the angle of the wire bend is most compatible with Gammie Octopus hooks but i am guessing that a little bit of tugging on the seated hook would provide a match with trailer hooks that have a more modest angle of the hook eye. I cut the ring eye off these shanks with a flush cutter that cost me 14.95 and i do not need to file the cut. The rough finish of these shanks holds very well in the jaws of my Renzetti, Stonfo, and Regal vises. I am currently tying up winter steelhead flies on these shanks with the highest confidence.

Trailer Rigs

The new Trailer Rigs from Fair Flies are a really nice addition to the line up. The shanks are made of a thicker gauge wire which I really like in a shank as well as being textured to prevent thread slip. The fact that they have an return eye and closed eye for dumbbell eyes or beads and they all come with trailer wire is a guaranteed will buy again product for me. The little details that Fair Flies and Stealth Hooks have paid attention to has really made this kit easy to tie with.
