Wow! That's an interesting pattern. I see a couple potential problems. Long trailing rabbit strip like that is notorious for fouling around the hook while casting. Maybe add a weed guard to prevent it? That could give you the freedom to throw it into some heavy cover too.

The other concern is that stiff wire stem with the beads and blades. Wont that bend with a hard pulling fish? If that wire gets bent out of shape, its really going to effect how the fly tracks.

Look forward to hearing how you do with it!!

I don't think that the rabbit skin will foul with proper Casting But you see I am going to Switch the wire to Cabela's 240Lb test wire Also there is a Company called (Janns Netcraft) that carries much heaver Wire than cabela's...... I think that will take care of that problem and I will add on bigger Spinner blades and I will Use bigger beads also....,.If the Rabitt Skin gives me a problem Fouling I will fix it with proper FlyTying.... I Think I am Capable of that...


Talk tyo you later

Definitely an original pattern. I like the creativity that went into it.

My first thought would be that it might not have enough of a profile in the water, especially for a big fly. It's long, sure, but it won't help create the illusion of bulk that most musky flies do. However, if you're local muskies feed on snakes or leeches, or if you just want a general attractor pattern then this could be a winner. If their main forage is baitfish though, you might find this pattern to be a bit lacking in profile.

My second hesitation would come from the use of rabbit strip itself for two reasons. Long rabbit strips can be a bear to cast even on heavy rods. The second is that it has a tendency to foul a lot, both in the water and on poor casts. Perhaps the casting isn't something you struggle with, but fouling in the water is practically unavoidable.

But if the fly doesn't work as you initially intended, there is no reason why you can't go back and modify it later. I'm also looking forward to hearing how you do with it.
