how much "modifcation" is too much to a classic trout fly?
Working on re stocking my fly box, made it to town today and resupplied on flashabou, bead heads, peacock herl and brown biots but I forgot to buy some more white biots and some brown hackle.
Working right now at getting a healthy supply of prince nymphs and was curious if it is 100% mandatory to have hackle on a prince?
I have a few white biots but could I make a "flashback" prince by replacing the white biots with my whitish flashabou?
Im just curious how much you can actually change on a fly before it begins to imitate and represent another bug or insect.
