I don't know that the way I tie my flies or the materials is any better than the next trike tie, they work for me.
I use dark dun hackle for the tails, black polypro (Fly-Rite)for the body and white polypro for the wing. I use the standard Mustad 94840 for a hook. It's a down eye, I know, but that has never made a diff to me.
I know the spinners get smaller as the season goes on and I'll go to #28's....when they go up to the fly and quickly dart away at that size I know it's time for a rest. Smaller flies than that are for magicians.
