I just got some ep fibers and wanted to ask if anyone had any advise on tying bluegills and perch like the ones on puglisi's site or on orvis's site. I tied a bluegill and it turned out ok but not exactly what I wanted.

I usually tie all mine in all white or pearl and color them in Prismatic colors. Works pretty well.
