We have a great replacement for waddington Shanks. We now carry the Fish Skulls Articulated Shanks. These are a great substitute for waddington shanks. Waddington shanks have been hard to get because they are produced by Partridge and that is a English company. They don’t really have a distributor in the states so we have been constantly getting back ordered on this product. To be honest with you I prefer these Fish Skull shanks because it is a single wire design and they’re so many different possibilities with hook options when using this shank.
They come in 3 sizes.
Here are a few sample Flies from the Fish Skull website.
