Just like its cousin, 3D Minnow Fibres, this fibre is versatile in its usage. I use it for crab patterns, as well as creating EP Fibre Minnows. Having this material in your fly tying box, just provides another medium to tie flies when some of the other flies are not working too well. Michael
the possibilities are endless

this material allows you to create just about any shape you want.just tie the fibers on a hook and cut to shape.the fibers are lightweight and don't absorb water-which makes casting the largest flies a breeze.the only down size they fowl the hook easy and you are constantly straightin out the fibers but its worth it to cast flies larger than you would ever dream of. you can also get creative with ep fibers and tie artistic flies worthy of framing

These fibers do make some of the best looking saltwater flies I've ever tied. It takes a little bit to get used to tying with them, but it's definitly worth it.
The fly can get fouled easily while casting, but it's not that big of a deal. However, it will get very messy when you catch a fish. You will need to take some time to clean up the fly (have a comb handy). So, don't use it when you are expecting to catch a lot of fish in a short period of time (trout at the lights, spanish mackeral, chasing schools of small redfish, bluefish, etc.)
When you are looking for that one fish that just wont take another fly, pull out something tied with EP fibers.
Pricey, but good

This material has a very fishy characteristic that I haven't been able to find in any of the other synthetic hairs I've tried. It is a little pricey, but it is money well spent. The EP Fibers are fairly easy to work with and they just have that fish catching quality.
Fish love EP Fibers!

I've been using EP Fibers recently for bonefish style flies for carp in the Orange and Rust Brown and they eat them like candy! The bass also attack clousers tied with EP Fibers. You can use it sparingly and it flows well in the water for a synthetic but is not limp or stiff (just right). It reminds me of kiptail though it's translucent. It is thin enough you can build small heads as well. Great material!
