I'm about to try tying some Squid imitations to use offshore. I've seen a ton of good ones online, but figured I'd see if any of you guys have some good simple squid patterns to try? Let's see em if you do. Any size, just looking for some good ideas. Thanks

I have one, but it's not simple. I'll see if I can get some pics and post them. Cobia love it.

@FlyBy, any luck with getting some pics of your squid fly? i havent seen many cobia specific flies and am pretty curious what you're throwing

Old and ratty, been chewed a bunch but only one I have with me. Mantle is yak hair, body Estaz Grande chenille, head is small styrofoam ball covered with same chenille, tentacles are dry fly hackle with brown spots for suckers.

Great stuff guys. Going to have to try some of those. I tied up my first squid this morning. 4.5” overall on a 3/0 Mustad. Hopefully test it out if this weather would get right.

Here are couple of mine, I’m going to make some with eyes sometime using Bob LeMay’s method for hanging the eyes off the back on a loop of mono.

A great (and easy) method for squid flies is to use an articulated shank. Tentacles and eyes on a standard or short-shank hook; body and mantle on a (think Intruder) shank.
