calamari friday

calamari squid fly tied by Al Q. © 2012 photo by Al Q

squid are great all around versatile baits found in oceans worldwide. they are fun to tie. I have finally got some time to play around with the new articulated shanks by fishworks. i tied this squid last night using a 4/o mustad tarpon hook in the rear and then attaching it to the shank by clipping the hook onto the shank. this is a very easy system to build a long squid. the materials i used in this fly were: tan ostrich herl dotted with purple and orange markers, large doll eyes attached on each side with a gob of goop, enrico puglusi large orange brush, sf rainbow blend, lead wire, orange crystal chenille over the shank, and mono thread with tuffleye finish.
