I use 6-12 strands (depending on hook size) of Krystal Flash for all of my spent wing spinners. First time I saw the pattern it was for #26 trico spinners and the reasoning was that Krystal Flash always seems to find that little bit of light and you can see the flush-floating imitation out on the water. It worked so well for my trico's that I started using it for my other spinners up to size #12 and haven't used anything else since. The fly floats surprisingly well if you grease it up.

Poly yarn always got too crazy on me and I love CDC, but never found a reliable way of un-sliming and quick-drying it after taking a fish on it.
