From the large bonito that cruise the waters off of Catalina Island to hungry snook in the southeast coast of Florida, the EP Anchovy Fly is a solid baitfish pattern to have in the arsenal. An Enrico Puglisi pattern, the EP Anchovy Fly was created to match anchovies and other slim-profile baitfish found in and offshore and is tied with a body of EP Fibers, accents of flash, and a realistic pair of eyes. It also has a subtle gill marking and a head that pushes water very well.
The EP Anchovy Fly has a classic baitfish appearance, which makes it a pattern that excels in a variety of places and conditions. Ranging from freshwater scenarios where pike are the target to casting into tidal rivers, along the open ocean, or working from the bow of a boat, this is a pattern that will help you get into predatory fish. A simple fly to fish and a dead ringer anytime anchovies are being eaten, the EP Anchovy is best presented with a stripped retrieve of varying speeds until you find just what the fish want.
