Default Flats critter?

Whipped this guy up yesterday. Trying to work on a little something that I feel comfortable throwing at bones and permit. I'm Almost to where I want to be with this fly. Thoughts? Critique away I'm a rookie and love criticism. And that was my first weed guard I have tied as you can clearly see that I have way too much thread. Also. This fly will be used in Biscayne Bay and the average Bonefish I run into is huge. But I think I might have to tie it a bit smaller? I dunno Click the image to open in full size.Click the image to open in full size.

Thanks man. I just started tying... But by hanging around the shops I have gotten sneak pics here and there of there " go to" patterns for bones and permit. And they all seem to have longer bodies and fan out a bit when they land. So this is what I came up with.
