I was looking at the Black Prince wetfly pattern, but didn’t have black wing material but I liked the pattern and combination, so: I could call this a no-wing Black Prince! It turned out better than I thought and will work great for trout and grayling. This just shows that you really don’t need everything in a pattern to get started on it, you can omit something, add something, and still end up with something that will really catch fish!
