WOW! That squid is a killer calimari.

Back in the original calimari caper I put together 3 extended body squids using nylon tube fly tube material. I gave Roop the front fly at last year's spring clave so can't post a close-up but here is the image taken back then for the article that never happened...

The surprising thing about them is that they are very light when extended with nylon tubing and are very castable. That little gray blur right at the mantle is the hook.
