This 5/0 Squid Pattern was created to fish for big Stripped Bass in ripps, or anywhere Big Squid Lurk. Big Stripers are known to key in on Big squid in the spring and summer. Especially along the new england coast. These flies are made with the best in materials, including Partridge Hooks, and Whiting Feathers. There is also a Waddington Shank incorporated into the rear of the fly, to allow the angler to add a trailing hook to catch those fish that hit it short. We can supply the trailing hook at an extra charge.
