Default Thoughts on CDC winged Rusty Spinners

I use CDC for almost all my flies...my dry fly box is weak when it comes to spinners I tied a few CDC winged spinners and it saved me from being skunked yesterday just would like any spinner aficionados' input on what they find the most productive tying style when it comes to spinners.....and last but not least HAPPY EASTER TO ALL !!!!!!

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.
