That's really a question that has so many answers that
we could have thread after thread for variations.

I've caught some big smallies on everything from a #14
Black Caddis to a 3"-4" Black Leech & everything in-between.

Since I now have a Hyde drift boat to get to deeper water &
am tying up a vast array of new tube flies the sky's the limit
for tempting those fighters.

If I had to choose one or two flies I'd most likely tie on either
a Crayfish, or a Leech.

When I began seriously FF'ing for smallmouth about 5-6 years ago, I
found that Clousers worked much better than Wooly Buggers. I tried WB's
quite a bit, but Clousers almost always worked when the buggers failed.
I use chartruese and white hair, with a dose of flashabou, mostly on #10
bass bug hooks. Chain bead is used rather than lead eyes: the fish don't seem
to mind, and I don't have to worry about lead hitting my rod tips.

Anything I make I'd vote for the clouser minnow, woolies, and topwaters like a poper, pete, or the muddler.

I usually start with a top water of some sort, popper or super spider...If they aren't working I go to a shiner pattern I tie, or a crayfish.
