Default Tying a few flies

Since yesterday was kind of breezy I cleared a little spot on my tying table and started messing around with some EP fibers and brushes. Until the end of May the tying videos on the EPflies website can be viewed for free, normally a paid subscription is required to watch them. The longest flies in the picture are around 3" long. I tied the white ones because last year at on of the islands the reds wanted little mullet flies and natural a shark ate my red and the only mullet fly I had

Nice ones.
I tried one one time with a black tail and some finger mullets with the black tail



Then I gotta complicate things by tying on some braid and adding a tail

These EP and SF fiber flies are not that heavy and they shed water well. Easily use an 8,9,10 wt but I have 2 12wts one with clear intermediate sinking line and one with floater. I like the 12’s on bigger fish but kinda tough flinging them all day. I usually use the 10 wt but I like the 12wt with big popper and shrimp mostly. Flinging bass bugs all day I use a sweet lil 5wt.

Denny, what fly would you use targeting Jacks on a 12WT?

I would tie one of these on in black, purple or yellow to a 6’ leader to the clear intermediate sinking line. Prolly use one of my pretied leaders with 8” of wire for insurance. Others can chime in I’ve never landed a big jack on fly rig. Most times they hit when targeting lesser stuff by mistake and they made quick brake off. Couple prolly were seamonsters.

Or tie the red one on. Any baitfish pattern.
