Default Walleye Flies

In the coming weekend me and a buddy are going to hunting for some walleyes and seeing as I need to make a trip to bass pro anyway I figured I'd pick up a few things to tie some walleye flies. I know black and purple get used alot, anything to contradict that? Also, Black bunny strips. Anything else to look into?

Thanks.

I fished a bunch for walleye last summer, and I had good success with minnow imitations... I caught a bunch on clousers and modified bunny leeches in white tail, white chenille of your choice, red chenille for gills with a mottled turkey quill wing/fin and a marabou collar with dumbbell eyes...

Also leech imitations and the like... sorry I don't have pics for you, haven't tied any wally flies yet, that is still to come... hope this helps...

But here's one I got on that pattern...

I fish forthem a lot. I mostly use clousers. Blue and white is the color I use most. I also tie a leech pattern with black marabou I loop dub on stemless with pettijean (sp?) clips. They have hourglass eyes like clousers.

Leach pattern, Clouser Minnow, and another one that I do but dont remember the name for are the patterns I use. Only thing is, make sure you can get the fly down to the lvl that the fish can see well enough to hit. If your in 5ft of water make sure it is getting down to about a foot off the bottom and you should have no troubles with it at all.
