Re: How important is the wing
This is something I have been experimenting on with all my mayfly dries. I do not think the wings really matter, even on finicky tailwater trout. I do notice that with the wing tips there is more space for more Aquel or Froggs Fanny or whatever you use to help your fly float though.
