How is it casting, like a fat bass bug?

The fly in the picture is 6 inch long but it it also tied in smaller size for trout

Its easy to cast in smaller version but like all big flies its a work out for the big flies

Yup there will be a pike out there someplace that will hit that thing. One thing you may want to try is adding more weight to the front end of the hook before adding the stuffings to it. I do best with more of a head down fall then when stripping the line in it gives it a jigging action. Gives the fly more action on the hair, tinsle, or other stiffs you tie with. You fly as is would do best when the fish are a bit sluggish and not wanting to chase down food. I'd keep one of each. After seeing your fly here I may give it a try. Good job on the tie.
