ronr,
As long as a native liked the fly it is a keeper. Have fun in Montana!!

Re: Winged Larva Lace

Sparkle duns and x-caddis both made me a believer in synthetic shucks added to other patterns.! :shock: ;)
Sometimes Bling is the Thing! :) You can snip off the emerger shuck if you want a dry dun or caddis. The one fly contests made me a follower of convertible flies.
