Just wondering

Talking about Squid flies only here. In a discussion with a tier who came up with a differant Squid fly that incorporates a stinger hook, he said that after 2 yrs fishing the fly that every fish he caught came on the stinger. In using Squid with extended bodies, the eyes set well behind the bend of the hook, has anyone experienced short hits due to the fish keying in on the eyes? I haven`t enough experience with these flies to make any conclusions yet.
