You’ll want to pull out a bigger rod to cast this lake trout fly. Casting a sweat sock comes to mind when I see just how big this pattern is. If you plan on tying these, I would suggest getting your rabbit strips by the pelt or half pelt, as each one looks to take a whole strip to tie. I love the head, and the UV resins of recent times have been a real bonus to the fly tyer. Although this is designed for lake trout, might I suggest throwing this to some pike, bass, gar and musky?
