Realistic Baitfish Profile The Fish-Skull™ design mimics the head, eyes and gill plates of a baitfish producing a more realistic looking profile. The realistic size head typically “pushes more water” than traditional flies.
Built-in-keel This unique design feature places the center of gravity and 70% of the weight of the Fish-Skull™ slightly below the hook shank producing a “keeling” effect similar to a dumbbell. The keel helps the fly track and orientate in the correct position. Allows the fly to be tied in either the hook down or the hook up position if desired.
Top and Bottom Slots Allow vertical freedom of movement for the tying materials. Enables broader profile flies to be tied and gets more natural action from the materials.
Made from a 100% lead free metal composite material that is guaranteed to be corrosion free for up to 80 hours in saltwater.
3-D Eyes Act as an important “trigger” for predatory game fish. A full set of 3D eyes is included with the Fish-Skull™ heads in the bag which eliminates the additional cost of buying eyes. Sunken eye sockets in the Fish-Skull™ give fly tiers the option to use any other make, style or color of fish eye if they choose to do so.
Innovative Front-Fitting Design Quick-and-Easy to tie with. Simply tie in all materials first, super glue thread wraps and fit Fish-Skull™ from front, finish off by tying a small thread-dam between the skull and the hook eye. Eliminates the need to use multiple coats of epoxy to build up a head and attach the eyes.
Made in the USA The Fish-Skull™ is 100% designed and manufactured in the United States.
Note: Fish-Skull has been sized using “standard” length saltwater hooks as a reference point. However, due to the wide variance in hook sizes and shapes found between the different hook manufacturers, this only provides general guidance to the hook sizes suitable for each size skull. Those sizes highlighted in Red are generally found to be the best hook size; however we suggest you experiment to find the optimum hook for the particular fly pattern you wish to tie. See our Recommended Hook Guide in our Fly Tying resources section for more guidance on hook selection.
Weight The Fish-Skull™ adds weight to your streamer pattern. They are made from a lightweight metal composite that allow the creation of a realistic size fish-head with a large surface area, but without adding excessive weight. They weigh roughly about the same as an equivalent hook size dumbbell.
