Lakeland Fly-Tying began trading in January 2000 and since then 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.

The Fish-Skull® Articulated Fish-Spine is an innovative system of interconnected, articulated shanks that combine to form a multi-jointed, “fish spine” upon which incredibly animate and realistic baitfish patterns can be tied.

The Fish-Spine was co-developed with Blane Chocklett who is one of the fly fishing industry’s most forward thinking and innovative fly tiers.   By daisy-chaining a series of articulated shanks, Blane conceived of a way to impart incredibly realistic action into baitfish patterns that has until now been impossible to achieve. Multi-jointed “swim flies” with ultra-real action!

Key Features:

  •     Four specially designed articulated shanks of varying lengths.
  •     Tapered effect creates life-like action.
  •   Stainless steel for saltwater flies.
  •  Six Fish-Spines per pack (24 individual segments).

 

  •  Articulated Fish-Spine Q & A:
  • Q:  What is a Fish-Spine comprised of?
  • A:   A Fish-Spine is comprised of four specially designed articulated shanks of various lengths i.e. 25mm, 20mm, 15mm and 10mm. These shanks are connected together to form a highly articulated, tapered fish spine.

 

  • Q:  What is the basic method for tying flies using the Fish-Spine?
  • A:  The concept is very simple. Flies are typically created in four or five sections, i.e. a hook (at front or back) plus three or four articulated shanks all “daisy chained” together to form the body and tail of the fly.
  • A fly is tied in segments. Each segment is tied using one of the 3 or 4 articulated shanks or the hook. Typically, a fly is tied by starting first with the tail segment and once completed, more segments are added on one at a time until you finish at the front of the fly.
  • To explain in a little more detail… each segment is created by tying the materials (natural or synthetic) onto an articulated shank which is held in your vise.  Once a segment is tied, the articulated shank is removed from the vise and connected to the loop of the next size of articulated shank.  In turn, this new shank is held in the vise and the materials in turn are tied onto that shank.  This process continues until the segments of the fly (shanks and hook/s) are all connected together.  The fly is then trimmed to shape and any final features like eyes or body markings can be added to finish off the fly.
  • Shank direction: For flies that have a hook positioned at the front of the fly (as illustrated), then the daisy-chained articulated shanks can face in any direction and it makes no difference to the performance of the fly. However, for flies that have a stinger hook positioned at the back of the fly, then the shanks will need to be positioned with the Big Loop facing towards the back of the fly… so that the hook can be slipped onto the big loop on the last shank in the chain.

For nearly 18 months now, fly-tiers around the world have struggled to get the Whiting Farms hackles they need to pursue their passion for tying. We are 100% committed to you, our prized and trusted customers ... our fly-tying friends.

Technical Information

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.
