    The SQUID VICIOUS

    Hooks: Matzuo sickle hook size 6 for stinger- Tiemco -800s size 4 for shank
    Thread: 6/0 white nylon
    Trail: lite-brite cray fish orange, white ostrich plume, grizzle hackle
    Eyes: Spirit River 3D molded eyes silver 3.5 and 5 minute epoxy
    Body: Berkley Fire Line 30lb test with light coating of zap a gap
    Dubbing made of Ice dub UV LT Yellow, Polar Aire burnt orange, and lite-brite cray fish orange cut and mixed together
    Over/Under wing: Polar Bear hair under Buck tail mix of white, brown, and magenta
    trimmed to reach just below the eye.
    Hackle: Wapsi streamer rooster neck hackle white

    Hard as Hull head cement

    Lay down base of thread on stinger hook
    add ball of dubbing to help keep legs flared out
    add lite bright, ostrich plums and hackle feathers
    Whip finish and trim
    add eyes
    Secure fireline to hook and epoxy eye
    lay down base of thread on front hook take care not to wrap to far back
    you need enough room to add some buck tail and palmer a large hackle feather
    secure fireline through eye of front hook and wrap thread over
    superglue fireline and thread base- wrap over again while glue is still wet
    wrap thread back toward trailing hook and add half hitch
    form dubbing loop in front of eye of trailing hook
    add light coat of super glue on fireline to have dubbing stick to it better
    add dubbing and palmer forward almost all the way to the front hook eye
    add bear hair top and bottom of hook only so there is a space for the eye on each side
    trim and blend buck tail and tie in on top of bear hair
    add rooster hackle and palmer in at front of leading hook
    whip finish and cement
    once dry use wire cutter to snipe off front hook right below where dubbed fireline attaches to the shank
    wear safety glasses during this part

    While this is a fun fly to tie and is entirely too complicated and takes too much time to tie given there are alot of steps and you are waiting for glue to dry
    Don’t except to crank out a dozen of them at a sitting
    But I like them and they look hella cool in water

    Kelvin- I've always like this fly and kept it in the back of my mind. I finally got off my butt and tied something similar the other day, using what I had on hand. I recon my proportions are a bit off, that I need some big eyes, and a touch of brown, but I'm still going to fish it. Cheers for the motivation!
