Attaching a Trailer Hook Loop to Senyo’s Articulated Shank

Jay Nicholas demonstrates how to tie in a loop to attach a stinger hook on Senyo’s Articulated Shanks for Steelhead and Salmon flies. This product is created by Fish Skull and makes a GREAT base for tying all sizes of Intruder flies that us steelhead and salmon anglers fish.

The Stinger loop is shown in this video using Senyo’s Intruder Trailer Hook Wire. Fact is that some folks prefer to use Fireline or Mono for their trailer hooks, so if you do, this method is the same you should use with your loop material of choice. The idea is to produce a secure base for your trailer hook and this makes it very secure and properly aligned to make sure your hook rides straight in the water.

Senyo’s Articulated Intruder Skanks are offered at present in 25 mm and 40 mm lengths. Both come in handy for various size flies.

Shank and Wire Colors: A variety of colors are offered in both the articulated shanks and the trailer hook wire so use your creativity and let fly, so to speak.

Key materials featured in this fly tying instruction video are:

Thread – Veevus 6/0 black or red
