Penns Green Drake hatch

A friend of mine wants to hit the green drake hatch on Penns. Tied a bunch of GD Clouser Drakes. What else should I be tying?

Went back through the Penns Creek posts and I have a couple questions.

What are the color of the GD nymphs, (cream vrs. olive) and are there other patterns I should have? (sulfers)

Thoughts.

What I use for my nymphs - dubbing - 2 parts yellow and 1 part olive. that's just me though. You ask ten people what their drake pattern is - you will get 10 different answers.

On a side note on Penns - I was up there today and march browns were coming off. If you are planning to fish the green drake around memorial day - im thinking you are going to be 2 weeks late

Thanks for all the replies. I tried a couple wiggle nymphs this weekend (before I saw the oldlefty post) and mine suck, but I know what I did wrong (color, size, proportion, there's probably more).

I think you're suppose to throw the first three ties of any new pattern away. I can't bring myself to do it. They are just buggy/gnarly/previously chewed enough to catch something.

I'll try some more this weekend.
