Substitute away! There are folks who will tell you that you have to be specific in materials, sizes, colors, etc. I've got news....the trout don't care! I would be more concerned with matching the profile and getting a smooth drag free drift.
That said, trout can be picky. Sometimes they want a certain color, size, profile, or its no joy. For dry flies, the size and profile coupled with a good drift are most important. A dry fly floating on the surface leaves a very small footprint.
