Spoonflies like these are very reliable- Click the image to open in full size.

Chartreuse and White Clousers are trustworthy producers.

I usually throw something more like these-

There's really no need to fish heavy flies, as you'll usually be targeting tailing fish in less than 2' of water. Sizes 2-6 are plenty big, and craft fur is great because it doesn't get absorb water and get heavy.
