Pattern Description
The EP Minnow is a creation from Enrico Puglisi. This fly is more a pattern of tying than a specific pattern, and can be tied in varios configurations, colors and shapes to imitate a variety of baitfish. I have tied these flies up to about ten inches long for dorado fishing, and as small as two inches for trout. You can easily alter the size of the fly by trimming it down on the water to match the prevailing bait as well. Carrying permanent markers with you will further the ability to change the pattern as needed.
