EP style Baitfish

For my own fishing this year I am trying to focus mostly on using Baitfish imitations like the ones in the picture below….
Now these are actually made with Deer Creek Baitfish fibre which closely resembles EP fibre and therefore can be tied in a similar fashion, hence the ‘EP style’. I have tweaked these slightly during the tying process and used slightly more material around the body and head than is the norm for this type of pattern to give a slightly fuller more rounded profile, however they still remain light and castable, shedding water well on the back cast…. I was easily hitting 30yds with them while test fishing them the other night and the fish also gave them the seal of approval…
They are tied on a 1/0 Sakuma saltwater hook and measure around 4 inches.
