This is a variant of the good old fashioned “Stimulator” a great attractor fly for just about any place that the fish are feeding on the surface. The Sparkulator was designed and tied for fishing as a hopper pattern, however, like the Stimulator it can be used as a searching pattern,for fishing larger terrestrials, and is great as an indicator fly if fishing a nymph dropper.
