Here's a couple Candy Squids of the Popovics design. Overall length is about 3.5" and they're tied on a 1/0 hook. I tied several up in each of the two colors, and I have to say that I really like the process.....maybe that's just the epoxy talking. :eyecrazy:

I look forward to trying them out and seeing just how durable they are. Aside from the rubber legs, they seem to be hard as nails.

(By the way, Pop Fleyes is worth its weight in gold.)

Serving suggestion: a sturdy leader and copious amounts of salt water. ;)

John, it's nice to hear that these are durable. Thanks.
