Stan's Momomoy Squid

Here is a squid fly that at times has been outstanding for Albies in the rips around South Monomoy. When light from above shines through the plastic beads, the fly appears to have spots that light up all over the body, as does a squid at times... Stripers like it too. Since the beads come in such a wide variety of colors (even glow in the dark) the combinations are almost unlimited.

Salty, You can buy the beads at craft stores or some fabric stores also carry them. Stan

I find that the glow in the dark beads accessorize the best for night fishing.

Thumbs up

I remember taking that photo! I hired two beach models for that shoot. Strangely, they look a lot like Striblue and da' Penguin!

I also remember putting the Atlantis prototype through some excercises that day... I recall hooking 9 fish in a short amount of time before crossing over onto the flats. The cloud cover lightened up a little and I found some nice fish on the humps willing to take on the 'dangle'.

Then if I am not mistaken I happened onto some more in the skinny stuff that were visible 110ft away and I was able to hook and land several from the pack that required the full 110ft to get a hookup.

Boy I sure came away from that day with a very convincing batch of datapoints about the Atlantis capabilities!

Stan,
Beautiful fly. What is the material that you are using over the beads? Also, are you basically "stringing the beads" on the hook?
Lastly, what hook are you using.
Thanks,
DK

Phat Phly! I'll certainly have to tie a few of those for the upcoming season. Please post the recipe at your earliest convenience.

Chris, Monomoy Squid Recipe

Step one: crimp the barb of a 4/0 34011 hook enough to slide on seven or eight plastic tri beads in your choice of colors

Step two: flatten two sides of a pony bead(I use a grindstone) and attach two 3-D epoxy eyes, again our choice of colors

Step three: using extra fine clear thread, tie in the tentacles using marabou, saddle hackles and flash. IMPORTANT!! keep testing the size of your wrap by sliding the pony bead over it. When it fits very tightly don't add any more material.

Step four: tie in Bill's Body braid at the eye end of the hook and wrap it so it tapers forming a point and forces all the tri beads tightly against the pony bead with the eyes.

Step five: coat the body and eyes with five minute epoxy
