Here is a small squid with Sili Skin as a body.. the tenticals are white maribou, a little pearl angle hair, 4 stands of pearl large saltwater flashabou, and four to five thin white hackle tips... the feelers are two long white rooster capes stripped down to close to the ends to make a spoon shape. The eyes are imbedded under the sili skin.

Nice calamari, John. Great application for sili-skin. What size hook are you using there? And it appears to be a long-shank. Is it?

Jay, It is a Varivas 3/0 long shank and the gap is bigger than it appears and the body will compress with presure.
