Squid (II)

This is the other squid pattern I tied up. Much the same at the first one with the white and grizzly microbarb saddles.I also added 2 strands of holographic Xmas tinsel down each flank. The main body is a combination of white and pink marabou hairline feathers.


A super super light fly to chuck and it moves and breathes very similar to a squid. I'm chuffed with these two patterns at both the raccoon and marabou do the job nicely. I'll be at the Helsinki fishing fair from tomorrow so I'll try and post something from there when I get the chance. If any of you fins are going then stop by and say hi.
