    Awesome fly Steve. I think Black is underutilized in Puget Sound. I like the use of different materials. I look forward to fishing this this spring.

    Thanks guys, the eye is just attached with Zap-A-Gap. I've done some extensive casting with this pattern in other colors and the eye's have stayed on pretty well. I use a good amount of it and the eye adheres to the separate strands of body material.

    Kelvin, I was in Patricks's the other day and saw a couple squid patterns on the desk that looked distinctly 'Kelvinesque', were they yours?

    The man in black. It even has it's own theme song:




    Stolen ideas, classic colour pairings,etc. The blue collar is key :cool:
    Sea going critters. This style/idea/whatevs... can be tied small for sea runs, to as large and bulky as you'd like.
