Hard core traditionalists in Europe take pride in never to fish with attractors. Personally I don’t care. Even though I enjoy good imitation the most, I do use attractor flies. This is one of the pattern I use in lakes, in the evening and if the water is muddy.
The rib makes sure it sinks and if fished as a dropper careful hand twists creates interesting movements on the fly.
A lot of bug effects and bling on this one.
