There is a straight ring eye section and an open loop at the end that is rotated 90 degrees from the eye. You put a straight eyed hook on the open loop end and you have virtually 180 degrees of both horizontal and vertical movement once you secure the hook with tying thread.


yeah thats a stinger hook.. but with the negatives i mentioned above

for articulated flies look at circus peanut, Articulated Zoo Cougar, fur trader, mikes mufasa, ect

Dear ramcatt,

It's absolutely an articulation joint. Two ring eyes on opposing planes, ie. horizontal and vertical planes, are joined together and they can move freely in opposing planes. With the Flymen articulation the single hook is on the rear section and it can move both left to right and up and down. That by definition is articulation.

You can have an articulation joint with the point hook in the forward section where the rear section is simply a tail section tied seperately like on some of the flies you mentioned. The postion of the single point has nothing to do with an articulation joint.

A stinger hook is something else entirely, it is either a section of mono or wire attached to the bend or snelled to the shank of the lead hook in a two or more hook fly rig. It's entirely different. There are always at least two hooks in a stinger hook rig by defintion.

Regards,

Tim Murphy

a hook in the back does not make the fly articulated..the movement needs to be in the fly
a bare moveable hook off the back of the fly's body is not "articulation"

the # of hooks has nothing to do with "stingers"... its the position of the hook behind the main body of the fly.. rigging can vary

i mentioned earlier how these "AS" are not designed for effective rigging
- fireline/mono- loop to big and intrusive
- junction tube- loop to big
- hook in the loop- loose leverage

plus
-they are too light
-they have a flat eye
-they make ugly flies

You are absolutely correct in all of your statements above in my opinion. I can't see how those things make these devices non-articulated. They are useful in single fly/single hook regulations. They definitively would impart action.

he's thinking strictly as a stinger hook, most of the rest of us think about two simple lengths, including a long streamer hook back there.

we don't work on ramcatt's level. we are but humble country bumpkins of fly fishin', he is elite.

I didnt say articulated streamers where dumb. Your putting words in my mouth. You also didnt understand my comment. Not surprised seeing you tie dubbin on a hook and call it amazing. Boy? I think im old enough to be your father. Lord knows i would kill myself if i were.

I said the rapala comment in reference to the sculpin heads. How far do you go with a "fly" before its a lore? I through in they make a jointed one as a joke.

The ok kelly is in reference to Kelly Galloup Who is huge on articulated streamers. Jeeze dont you kids know anything j/k

Jimmy green isnt your color.
