Default Classic Leech spey flies

Hello,

I'm diving into the world of tying classic spey flies. I love the elegant look and charateristics of these flies, down to the up-bent hook eye and sleekly bent hook shank. However, I'm going to focus on patterns that 'should' catch fish in my river. I spey cast for Catfish, Drum, Carp, Sturgeon, etc. (whatever will take a flie). So, class presentations of crayfish, Leeches, warmwater folage, etc., are what I need. Maybe Classic spey flies that could resemble shad flies, etc., as well? What I need is help with direction on materials. I can get the hooks here: SS001 - Classic Salmon & Steelhead - Allen Fly Fishing Store

What I need to know are some patterns for the spey versions of these and what materials I should stock up on. What's good, what isn't. Etc. Please let me know...
