long shank hook. 1/0 for this 3" tie.
tie in a piece of extra large (pinky diameter) EZ body. tie in behind eye with material facing foward. Will pull back over itself later...
On hook shank wrap silver Body Braid to just before bend in hook.

tie in silver flash... extend 1"-1.5" or so past bend for tail
tie in white fish hair (or equal) ... extend for tail
tie in pink fish hair... etc.
tie in chartruse fish hair
tie in olive fish hair
tie in olive flash.
take EZbody and double back over itself and enclose fish hair.
Bind down at hook bend and tie off.
you can manipulate the EZbody to desired shape.
Use sharpie marker for gills and bunker dot.
5 minute epoxy over EZ body. (light coat to fill voids in EZ body mesh)
just before epoxy sets attach eyes.
trim tail to shape.

Here is a link to follow (non Commercial to the best of my knowledge) http://www.streport.com/files/bluefish.htm
Blue fish are carnivorous little devils that are great sport on a fly rod IMHO. A ten pounder or bigger can take you into the backing with ease. Great fighters.
They have a mouthful of sharp teeth and will break you off unless you have a wire bite tippet or a heavy Mono tippet. You do not lip one with your fingers, Boga Grips or pliers are a good way to unhook one. They will try to bite you if they can.
A large Blue fish blitz is a sight to behold especially if they have bait trapped up on shore. Bait will literately jump up on shore to getaway from them.
Many people do not like catching them or eating them. I like to do both. But I am weird
quotes from link above. "If Bluefish came as big as Stripers... They'd EAT your boat!" and "A feeding bluefish is fearless, fights to the end, and then considers your fingers for dessert."
