Violet and Gold Quill

The tie:
#16 Skalka Pupa hook
2.8 mm Tungsten bead
Tan 8/0 UNI thread
Brown rooster hackle fibres
Peacock quill treated with bleach
Australian Opossum dubbing
Hends UV Violet dubbing

A source that has been right in the past told me that the UV violet dubbing is the next best thing since sliced bread and I am leaving it out of my fly boxes at my own peril.
Of course, this source has been wrong as well, but do I dare to risk it being right this time?
