I've been using something I call the greenie

Hook: #2 Daichi 2456 or a gama
Body: pearl body braid or sliver flashabou
Thread: clear mono
Wing:
  • White florofibre
  • Silver polar flash
  • lt.pink polarflash
  • just a bit of chartruse florofibre on top
All tied in at the head

I think what makes this work well is when it's tied 1-1/2 to 2" long it still swims great because of the material. The polarflash really lights it up and makes it stand out.

I've also had good luck with Page Rogers' Slim Jim when the surface activity heats up.
