Squids!

I just love saltwater patterns! They have inspired my pike flies for many years, and to be honest, saltwater fly fishing is just awesome (especially if you have the chance to get your fly in warm salty water...)
This is a  tutorial on how to make an articulated squid with extra movement from the synthetic shammy leather tentacles.
I got to play a lot with different heads from Spawn Fly Fish and i really like them.The fact that they sell them blank as well is an added bonus as i like to customize my ties as much as possible.Go check them out as they innovate all the time and release new heads on a regular basis.
Pretty much everything is explained on this video, i changed a bit the content of my tutorials, and now they come with voice over. It saves me a lot of time in editing, i can explain things with more details and i have no worries for the musical copyrights...

I really hope you guys like it, and i have a few more planned for the near future.
Let me know in the comment section of the video if you want to see something in particular.
