Cool. Ever heard of the Flying Sea Cucumber?
They're usually attached to a torso that inhales a bunch of tequila. [Similar creatures: see also flying clam]

I have seen a flying clam...mind you it was dark...and there was loud music and drink...

I've seen many a flying worm.....sort of like a flying baby anaconda...come to think of it.

I love sautéd squid, Mexican style; fried squid, raw squid.

If any want to fly into my boat, I'll be VERY happy to eat them!

Are you talking about those mysterious things that fly and show up in photos?

yeah. I realize the squids can't really be rods because the rods are fast and often appear away from water and in some cases high up in the air.
