I would love to see someone catch a tarpon on that fly, but I'd imagine it wouldn't hold up well to such thrashing? Just out of curiosity, how durable are such flies with regard to fishing use (not that I believe myself capable of willing myself to fish one, rather than just displaying it).
I tie them with enough wraps and tons of wax to hold materials in place.
They will fish, but, do you want to fish a fly it takes 3-4 hours to tie?
