Function aside, the EP Flex Calamari Fly is a sweet looking critter, but it’s not just that, it’s a reliable pattern that you can fall on anytime squid are on the menu. A hard critter to imitate, squid have an intricate shape and profile, flowing tentacles, a prominent set of eyes, and colors that can change in a split second. The EP Flex Calamari Fly captures all of these attributes with ease and gives an effective squid pattern that will hook anything from large striped bass (they call them “squid hounds” for a reason), bluefish, and even offshore species like kingfish and dorado.
The Ep Flex Calamari has a realistic profile and design that’s crafted from EP Fibers, lifelike eyes, and long rubber legs. This fly has excellent movement in the water and can be fished in a variety of saltwater environments ranging from deep rock ledges to open beaches--this is a fly that works especially well under the cloak of nightfall when squid are particularly active. Squid are a bait that shouldn’t be overlooked and it’s important to always have a few of these in the box no matter where you’re heading.
