Most of the tricos around here are a bit smaller at size 24-26
Female Spinners: olive abdomen, black thorax
Male Spinners: black abdomen, black thorax
For the abdomen you can just use thread (or if you want to get fancy a goose or turkey biot).
For the thorax just a bit of Superfine (or similar) black dubbing
Wings can be White Poly or Antron and trimmed to length after tying, CDC or even just a few strands of Pearl Krystal Flash. And of course you can make wings of wound hackle clipped on top and bottom or figure 8-ed if you have hackle that small etc.
Mark nailed it. Follow what he said and you can't go wrong.
