  1. Enrico Puglisi is one of the most well known tiers in all of saltwater fly fishing. He invented the style of tying now known as EP, and also started the original line of synthetic fibers known as EP fiber. His "minnow" line of flies are popular because they have good movement in the water, and also are small, so a wide verity of fish will hit the bait. They also have lots of flash, so they are easy to be seen, and attract fish from a distance. The problem is that his fibers are very expensive, and his flies are as well. As you can probably tell from watching my channel, I tend to be a bit thrifty when it comes to fly tying materials. I am always looking on Ebay for good deals, or tend to go with less expensive alternatives to fly tying materials. I found that "water silk" from The Fly Tiers Dungeon works really well for this small EP style minnow fly. In fact I like the fiber even better. This fly will work also in freshwater and can be tied in a number of color patterns. For the head dressing, I used another material also by Fly Tyers Dungeon called "starburst dubbing" which works much like EP's Flash material he uses. Try this out, I think you will love tying and fishing this fly for a number of inshore saltwater species, and also freshwater species like bass and pike. Hook: Gamakatsu SS15 - size 2 Tail Flash: Cristal Flash - Bronze Fiber: Water Silk - White and Pheasant Tail Head Flash: Starburst Dubbing - Metallic Copper Eyes: 3D eyes - 4mm, Gold Eye adhesive: Fletch Tite Head Cement: Solarez UV Resin - Bone Dry Thread: Danville's Monofiliment Thread - Fine
