Waddington Shanks for Intruders and Big Streamers

Recommended Posts

What is a Waddington Shank? I get that question a lot, and in this video you can have a closer look...

Waddington Shanks have been around since the early 1950s but have really increased in popularity the past few years with the rise of Intruder style flies and large streamers. One of the fundamental features of an Intruder fly is the ability to have a large profile fly with a small hook. The small hook allows for less leverage to pull the hook while fighting fish.
