Squidro Fly

Squidro Flies are well-known for their steelhead catching abilities. I decided to do a variation of the original Squidro Fly Pattern and tie specifically for Trout Spey with no rear rubber legs. www.cooperlandingfishingguide.com

Giving credit to the Skagit Master, Scot Howell for his innovative fly design, I used just the front version of his fly pattern for this Trout Spey Mini “Intruder.”

The materials I used in this squidro fly can be swapped out for your favorite colors. I really enjoy using yellow, orange, brown and some red for tying this squidro fly pattern.

A simple, easy to tie and very effective fly for Rainbow Trout and Dolly Varden Fly Fishing up here in Alaska. This fly will also be effective for Great Lakes Trout and Steelhead.

Thank you so much for watching and Tight Lines!
