Squid rings that is:

This huge squid is by no means the biggest specimen caught but for normal anglers it represents the "big one" that many fisherman quite often brag about.

This squid was caught in a net that was being cast for bait. All I could think of was yum, calamari rings but he had been out of the water for some time before he was brought home.

You may be able to get an idea of how long it was , two A4 sheets of paper end to end just about covers it, and a normal size lighter lays beside it. I still can't imagine cutting it up for bait, alas he now resides in my freezer. I wonder if Felix who has taken up residence at every opportunity on my bed, would like a feed.
