Ljungan Squid was tied by Swedish Fly Tyer and contributer to Salmonfly.Net, Tobbe Heddin.

Tobbe writes about this fly: "...and here is a new pattern from me. It’s called "Ljungan Squid". I was inspired by Ken Sawada when I tied this one. I think it would work fine on Steelhead, Salmon & Sea Trout. Ken has been taking fish all over the world on his Squid patterns, so this one should not fail. "
