FB Squid

Here is a squid done with the Feather brain concept..All the material are natural feathers, except the eyes, crystal flash and inner corsair. The long feelers are trimmed along the sides and each leave a small pointed bulge at the tip.. the Tenticles are white/brownish grizzly hackles and the mantle is rooster . Behind the eye are Hen back feathers, off white.

John,

Being squid challenged, I have to say that this is one of the best looking squid I've seen.

I would love an opportunity to sit down with you and learn to tie this pattern/ style.

Best of luck,

Roop
