These sandeels are for my private box. Everyone is a little bit different. Some are extra weighted, some are not.
Three DANCING SQUIDS I finished last night in three different colors:
white/pearl | white/uv-sand | white/uv-pink
The idea behind this fly was to create a squid pattern, for fishing in the Baltic Sea for sea trouts. I wanted a squid pattern with a great movement in the water and it must be easy to cast. There are a lot of squid patterns around, but we fish for sea trout mostly with 6 and 7weights and casting long distances, so the less material the better. The DANCING SQUID moves great because of the sili legs, the ostrich and the articulation. The mantle is made from arctic fox and laser dub and got a nice translucency. They are weighted and tied on a Gamakatsu F 314 #4.
Watch out sea trouts, the DANCING SQUID is coming! ;-)
Everyone is talking about Squids in the Baltic Sea right now. Why? You can read it here on Globalflyfisher
It’s a nice and interesting written articel by Martin Joergensen. Martin is from Denmark and he is close to the sources, so why should I write it again? ;-) Thx Martin!
So, I don’t got any squid patterns in my fly box for sea trouts. That’s why I was testing a little bit on my tying place. These are the first two patterns.
First try, unweighted
The second try is weighted in the front and I put the eye on the second part and just the mantle on the main hook.
