Yea, they do look similar, but they are tied differently. This thing move alot more water then the ep flies do, I cant wait to try these out at night during the bomber bite. You got to love ep flies though, I tie alot of them too.

As you can see in the post, you can use what ever you want for the tail.

Question can you fly fish for stripers with 9' fly rod. I have a new Sage SP 9' fly rod would like to fish for stripers but I don't know if this rod will work

Yes, all my striper rods are 9ft. What weight is the rod? I use 7-9wts on lanier, you can get away with a 6wt, just dont hook a biggin:bounce:

It is all flash-n-slinky, the volume comes from the way you tie it, I kind of hard to explain. Ill take some pics next time I tie one.
