Calamari Delux

This fly facinated me. It is a squid fly developed by Corbett Davis Sr. and copied from Veverkas book on innovative saltwater flys. I had to copy one for my box.. The use of a surgical glove finger tip for the mantal is really an innovation to the standard squid fly.. It is tyed with some purple bucktail as veins , 8 hackles with two additional wide long ones...Palmered hackle behind the eyes. The body is chenille with glass purple eyes.. Just a great looking realistic squid... I can't wait to try it.
