Default Zebra Caddis/Alder Fly patterns?

Hey all,

I'm headed up to the Andro later in June and I'm wondering if anyone has suggestions for good Zebra Caddis/Alder Fly patterns?

I have only hit it right once. The fly that killed for me was #12 or 14

Body - peacock hearl
Rib - black hackle (smaller than hook, but big enough to be longer than peacock)
Wing - mottled turkey slips, in the henryville caddies style
Hackle, small black.

Another fly that worked great was a heron wet fly, with a peacock body and wooduck wing.

Thanks. I'll tie up a few of those and see how it goes.
