Nice flies , like them, but for wallies down here they prefer dark patterns, olive, brown black. unless they are chasin gizzard shad then a gizzie pattern workks. leech patterns are one of the best here..

yah. leech patterns are great, up here I have found that a standard brown, olive or black leech works great as well as grey, black, olive clousers but they do like the brite colors quite often too. I could fill that with more flies but I had to limit myself a bit.. lol
I have some leeches that are tied smaller for trout that I will use for walleye as well.

Thanks for the compliments.

Would you buy these flies, to sell in your shop?

My bet is on the ones with the zinc eyes.

Yah. They are black nickel to be exact, tungsten too so they get down a little quicker. I am experimenting a lot with colors, blues work great in the rivers etc. I try to take my spin fishing experience with colors, etc into my fly patterns!
I am acually going to modify it, because it is just not big enough!! lol
