Squid Lure Floats


Bright colors and this distinctive pattern were purposefully used to attract and catch squid. The floats were attached to a squid lure or squid jig and were used by Japanese squid fishermen long before this technique became widely used in decorator floats. 


In the video, Jim describes the technique used by floater makers which resulted in the snakeskin pattern.
