Default Older Fly Pattern

This pertains to trout flies. Have PMD's and Sulphers replaced the light Cahill as a better pattern? What insect did the Light Cahill represent?

When I began to fish Silver Creek, s.e. of Sun Valley, Idaho, about 40 years ago, a Light Cahill was my usual "entry fly" for the Pale Morning Dun hatch, which at that time had not yet become a standard part of the western fly angler's awareness. It worked more often than not.
