It is very efficient pattern and many flyfishermen here in Bulgaria like to fish with it. The chubs here love it. It's fished as a dry fly, and as is always the case with terrestrials fishing on windy days close to the bank or under bushes and trees might do the trick. Land insects blow onto the water all the time, and some fish are keyed in on these "casualties".
I hope your local fish like the Shark's Wasp too.
