    That EP Shad looks great! Do you weight it with wire or use a sinking line? Or does it fish fine as-is?
    Those streamers look great too, thanks for posting those!

    There are Wipers (Hybrids) in Lake of the Ozarks too. I caught quite a few of them this year on Clouser Deep Minnows.

    You can weight it with wire wrapped around the hook, but go easy, or it will affect the action. That's the kicker with these, they look, and move like a real fish in the water. It actually goes under pretty good without being weighted. Using Sink Tip, or Sinking lines might be a better option if you need to fish it real deep.

    The cool thing about this pattern is that it can represent bluegills, menhaden, porgies, or any other deep-bodied baitfish, just by coloring it different. I tie them all with White fibers, and color them like I want.

    Here's the same fly with different colors:
