A French squid in Irish colors


This is the finished squid. All the coloring was done at one time, first a white epoxy/acrylic mixture was applied and then the green and orange acrylic was dabbed into the wet colored epoxy. These colors were chosen from the Irish flag (green, white and orange). This fly took a Direcor's choice at the 2001 Irish Open Fly Tying Championship held in Dublin Ireland. A clear coat of epoxy was applied after the coloring was cured.
