Introduction: EP Style Baitfish Fly

Picture of EP Style Baitfish Fly

EP style baitfish fly's have become staples in many saltwater and warm water fly fisherman's boxes. They tend to be more difficult to tie though, and can take quite a while. I find that wrapping the fiber around the hook can take out a step and make tying this fly a little quicker, and easier. This fly can be tied in a wide range of colors and sizes and therefor work great for a large verity of species. They work great for saltwater fish, both inshore and deep sea fishing. Fish like redfish, seatrout, barracuda, salmon and even tuna will eat this fly depending on the color tied. Also they can be fished in some freshwater applications for fish like pike, bass, and large trout.
