Steve Farrars Flash Blend alternative

Hello everyone,

I have been experimenting tying up Jonny King's Kinky Muddlers in colors to imitate the smelt here in NYS's Finger Lakes. I like what I have accomplished so far, except that I think the flies are a bit too flashy. Flash Blend has a great translucency and texture but maybe too much flash. The best day to fish for landlocked salmon here seems to be when there is a bright sun and a good stiff breeze. On a day like that, the fly in the water is a bit too bold. Does anyone have a suggestion on something with the same texture without so much flash? Thanks!
