The thing, to me, that sets it apart is the profile that you can create with a bit of trimming. However, in the end, it doesn't really seem to equal more fish. It looks great out of the water and even in the water, but a clouser minnow will get just as many reaction strikes.
Nice fly that can catch fish? Sure. Game changer? not at all
It does have one advantage over many of the other standard Warm Water flies and that is it's ability to push water making it a great fly for stained water.
Now there are other flies that push water like that, the Kinky Muddler, a standard muddler, some of the woolhead flies, etc
