I've been stuck in a striper tying slump latley... I have cranked out dozens of Clousers, hollows, some EP baitfish..... still in mood to tie more striper stuff, what else should I be tying?

Take a look at the SS Flies website for some saltwater inspiration. And don't forget a few crab patterns if you'll be fishing from the beaches.

I have a handful of crabs that I've fished a bit, but they have never worked... but an all olive clouser often will produce as soon as I switch.

I have a good variety of hollow fleyes, but I'll probably tie a few more color combinations.
