Default Re: small mouth flys for murky river?

The local rivers are three feet high and MUDDY right now. I usually target pike more than smallies at this time. But I always take nice smallies on teh big pike flies. Mostly 6-7 inch streamers. Closest I can think of commercially are the "blue water flies" from Rainy's. Hit any where the current does not. If I miss smallies with the big stuff I will often go back and get them with smaller flies fished slowly.

I fish a very murky urban stream near my home for smallies and this pattern has worked really well for me. Not sure if it has an official name or not as I took things I liked from various other patterns. Apologies if I am not giving a tyer deserved credit for the recipe!
