Leech patterns work very well for waleye. Catatonic leech to be specific. in dark water, chartreuse patterns work well.

Almost all leech patterns work well. I have good luck with egg sucking leeches and wooly buggers tied fairly large. Also check out the species index link on the top of the home page to look at walleye patterns that editors have selected.
[COLOR=blue] the enjoyment in fly fishing comes not from catching fish but knowing that you came within micometers of filling your waders and avoided getting wet.

I was thinking of a large stone fly nympf
with a leech or minnow tailer.
so it looks like dinner and desert.

Clouser minnows are also effective, even in shallow water.

This topic makes me wish that there was decent flyfishing waters for walleye around here.

If the water you are fishing has a hexgenia limbata mayfly hatch, fish it night with a large hex imitation. Walleye feed heavily upon them when they occur.

The pattern I use is tied on a size 8 hook with bead chain eyes (tied on top of the hook) black chenille, black hackle, and black hackle feathers for a tail. The wallies up here eat um up and they are easy to tie.

Clousers and big nymphs have been my best for Walleyes.
