The flies are listed on the Orvis website and on EP's site along with the recipe and a video of how to tie them. Here is the link to EP's site
Finger Mullet

I'm sure his regular mullet pattern would work well too!!

Davo, It's funny that you mentioned orvis.... I actually work for Orvis in Milwaukee and gave a seminar on tying EP flies, but thank you anyways! They have a bunch of great information on the orvis podcast that would be a big help to any angler, I would suggest anyone to check them out!

Have you tried a seaducer. It is Florida Key Style Tarpon fly but the hook shank is covered with palmered hackle, left upright to be less streamlined and create more disturbance in the water. The wrapped hackle acts to create lots of fish attracting vibrations when stripped and helps hold the fly level in the water column during the pause. It also has the attribute of falling to the surface more quietly and not spooking jumpy fish.

What about some smaller hok sized Lefty's?

I havent tied any of those yet but with the long winter I'm sure I'l get to them. You know winter has gotten to you when you are willing to fish a 100yd stretch of river 15 feet across in 20 degree weather! Im not sure what will come sooner, the spring melt or my trip south......... You southern boys are lucky I tell you.
