Smallie Swipers

Hook: Size 4
Thread: 3/0
Weight: Dumbell
Tail: Zonker strip
Tail flash: Sparse angel hair
Collar: Marabou
Body/head: Chenille

The two flies in the attached image are in muted colors for smallmouth. The tan fly has a dark olive tail to show the proportions of each component. Flies that are one color (such as the black one here) show complete continuity in the water.

I've tied a few others up in attractor colors and will be giving them a test drive this weekend with some local crappie and largemouths.
