Green Drake spinner pattern??

I have been fishing a couple spots the last couple years where I swear the fish are taking Green Drake spinners, even though I've only seen a couple of them in the air. I've been doing some research, and several books stated point blank that Green Drakes mate at night and that Green Drake spinners are of limited to no use to anglers. I understand the logic, but don't totally buy it - the times I've wanted to fish this pattern have been early morning during June/July where I have tried dun and emerger patterns with limited success. I've tied up some of Sylvester Nemes GD spinners last year and tried them, and the heavy floss bodies and hen hackle wings sink them like a stone. I can certainly make up my own pattern, but I wondered if someone out there had some good spinner patterns they like or could recommend. Thanks!!
