I've always preferred realistic tails for dries, particularily mayflies. Micro fibers works OK and I also use Moose Mane Hair on some flies. I've not been a big fan of "bunches" of hair for tailing dries, other than a few select patterns. As for trailing shucks, I think any "antron" type material works fine.
