Lakeland Fly-Tying began trading in January 2000 and over the last 16 years we have strived to become the modern, efficient online and mail-order business we pride ourselves on being today. Over the years we have developed a reputation amongst our many valued customers for carefully selecting and stocking high quality products and presenting them at the right price. As we have grown, we have invested a great deal in improving our ability to serve our customers better - introducing sophisticated stock management and order processing systems to ensure your experience of shopping with us is both fast and efficient. This allows us to ensure that all orders received before 1.00pm (GMT) will be winging their way to you that very same day.

Success has not been easy. The last 13 years must have been one of the most testing periods in history for a fledgling business. Outbreaks of the foot and mouth disease in 2001 destroyed our second year of business. This was followed by avian flu and then what seemed like years of severe weather throughout the Summer. It destroyed many of the Game Fairs we attended and, to some degree, depended on not just to sell but to say a fond "hello" to our faithful supporters. Just when you think things can't get much worse we enter the worst recession for a generation. Throughout this period Lakeland has developed and adapted to become a much stronger and driven business; one with a clear and strong business plan that is determined to be here for you for many years to come.

Through hard work and a determination, Lakeland have developed incredibly strong relationships with the world's biggest suppliers and with the support of companies like Whiting FarmsRenzettiHMHDyna-King,WapsiPartridge and Veniards we now stock extensive product ranges from your favourite and most trusted brands. As the economy improves, Lakeland will continue to develop the product ranges so you can enjoy the many new items arriving each and every month. Lakeland's aim over the next few years is to increase product availability and offer our customers an even faster and even more efficient purchasing system with a web site that is both a pleasure to use and browse.

… and don't forget, if you need advice on our service, our products or even how to make the best use of the things that you buy, give Lakeland a call. We're here to help.

    Description

    Season :

    Code : 4665678

    Weight : 0KG

    The Fish-Skull™ is a weighted head that has a realistic baitfish profile and is specifically designed for tying freshwater and saltwater streamer fly patterns. Quick-and-simple to tie, this latest innovation in fly tying offers fly fishermen an exciting alternative to using old-style dumbbells or cones to weight their flies. The Fish-Skull™ has unique design features making it a very versatile platform for tying a wide variety of realistic, weighted streamer patterns using natural or synthetic fly tying materials. Small Fish-Skulls 10 per pack, Medium Fish-Skulls 8 per pack, Large Fish-Skulls 6 per pack.

    1. 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.

    2. WEIGHT

    • Fish-Skull™ adds weight to your streamer pattern. They are made from a lightweight metal composite that allow us to create 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. Weight as follows: Small skull is 0.48 grams (0.017 ounce), Small-Medium skull is 0.79 grams (0.028 ounces), Medium skull is 1.26 grams (0.044 ounces),  and the Large skull is 2.46 grams (0.087 ounces).

    • For the SMALL size Fish-Skull we suggest to use Rod/Line weight size #5 and higher.

    • For the new SMALL-MEDIUM size Fish-Skull we suggest to use Rod/Line weight size #6 and higher.

    • For the MEDIUM size Fish-Skull we suggest to use Rod/Line weight size #8 and higher.

    • For the LARGE size Fish-Skull we suggest to use Rod/Line weight size #9 and higher.

    • Made from a 100% lead free metal composite material that is guaranteed to be corrosion free for up to 80 hours in saltwater.

    Fish-Skull Streamer Heads ,  On

    A couple of attempts to get the right amount of material (not as much as I first thought) the heads are easy to use and really finish the fly off. They have a fantastic action in the water and are limited only to your imagination. Best of all I managed to catch my first pike using them!

    These are the dogs dangly bits for Bass lures, however, they also give a great effect to Salmon and Sewin flies particularly for high water patterns. Heavy and compact they are great for casting into deep holes or bouncing off rock or mud faces which fish lay against . Creates a very enticing lure!
    YES Andrew would recommend this item

    Fish-Skull Streamer Heads ,  On

    Excellent product which adds realism and weight and they fish/swim well too. One very important point to note though; they come with an elongated `letter box` style slot which is designed for eyed hooks but if you want to use them to finish tubes like I did then you will have to drill a hole big enough for an tube liner to go through.
    YES Tom would recommend this item

    Hi, My name is
    My Email Address
    My Phone Number
    My question about Fish-Skull Streamer Heads is...
    Pre-Order

    With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

    You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!

    Pre-Launch

    With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

    So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

    Estimated Delivery Dates

    Estimated Delivery Dates are given on Pre-Order and Pre-Launch products. They are for indication purposes only and can change at any time without notice.

    The dates we provide are based on indications given by our suppliers. Whenever we get updated information from our suppliers we will endeavour to update the Estimated Delivery Dates provided on product pages.
