Since it holds the shank behind the eye like a Double Turle, it should work just fine with wet flies. I suspect the biggest reason you haven't found anyone talking about using it with wet flies is because Harvey is a trout fisherman and trout fisherman nearly to a man use a loop knot of some sort like the Duncan Loop or a clinch knot of some sort to attach wet flies or streamers to a leader.

I'd say use it if you wish because it is certainly a strong enough knot, pulls up behind the eye, and is pretty fast and easy to tie.
