This is a variation of the Candy Squid that I posted a few weeks ago. Instead of prism eyes, I've used Real Eyes (like those for the Real Eel) to help get these flies down in a hurry. The two squid pictured are a single red and a single orange.

Using the Real Eyes calls for one more layer of epoxy after the two that are used with prism eyes. This is necessary to streamline the fly and prevent the hub cap bulging effect. The eyes are tied in after the short Super Hair supporting bundle and flash material, and prior to the sparkle braid that is wrapped up the hook shank.

Thinking of the Rip.......:)
