My Attempt

Ok Gents,

I sat down at the vise last night to tie up some squid. Unfortunately No picture ( trying to borrow a digital camera ) but here is a list of what was used.

Mustad 3/0 Saltwater Hook
6-8 White Saltwater Saddles ( tentacles )
3-6 Strands of Glow in the Dark SW Krystalflash ( 1 inch longer than the saddles )
Violet / Blue Angel hair, sparse ( veins )
Pearlescent White Estaz ( Body )
White Polarfiber ( Carapace )
Pearlescent Angel Hair sparce ( over carapace a little sparkle )
Set of large blue eyes.

I am sitting in my office looking at it as I write this and I'm thinking .... maybe with a little Olive Oil and maybe some Marinara Sauce this would taste good!

Thumbs up Sure Thing

I will definately be up there on the dates I mentioned. I will give you a call on that Thursday evening to coordinate a meeting place for Friday. Not sure of the parking situation up there so I may need some advice on where to park to avoid "Johnny Law" and his poison pen.

By the way the fly is rather small only 5 inches in length. Too small ? Inquiring minds want to know!

Next on the agenda will be Shrimp and Large Herring / Baitfish flies.
