Or "Do You Know Squiddley?"

Bob Pink and I have been talking about flies for big bass in rips - squid flies. Although a number of patterns exist, Bob is haunted by the images of "big bass crushing squid at Middle Ground" (a pronounced tidal rip off Martha's Vineyard Massachusetts).

I hope to do a little hands-on experimentation of various squid patterns with Bob when the spring run in underway. Two years ago the squid came into Dowses Beach in Craigville with big bass and spring slammer bluefish in pursuit. I rowed my dory across to the spit and caught scary blues in the mid-teens (over fifteen pounds) on a 9wt with squid flies in the farside rip. Didn't happen in 1999, but it might in 2000.

Anyway, if anyone would be interested in sharing learnings over the season re: squid patterns, I'd be happy to coordinate the findings and put up an article on the subject.

Let me know...
