Rob-

Great job! Looks like a musky happy meal.

That must have incredible action in the water--- what is it 12" long or so? What weight rod do you throw it with?

It is a very nice looking fly and a 10wt it prob casts easily enough. I know some of the musky/pike flies I make are a bit hard to cast on my 9wt. One suggestion I would make for u though, try a similar looking fly but make it sub-surface. I get much better reactions from fish on a large sluggish fly that tends to hang head down then when the line is stripped the head bobs up a little. A similar pattern but with a barbell weight on the front and a little less hair should do ya. This also gets the tail section moving in a wave pattern that Ive found fish have a hard time passing up.
