Fly Candy - Musky madness

I know I went a bit over the top with this ones construction and am sure its going to be a bugger to cast but for one thing its going to move a lot of water. The trailing tandm tail is actually the front end from one of the first tested musky flies I started tying which I managed to salvage and comprises of brown schlappen,tan brown bucktail, and a very large spun deerhair head.

The main body is a combination of tan brown bucktail, a couple of clumps of reindeer fur, 3 micro orange opposum zonkers, a 70mm length of gold mylar and a bottling cork dremmeled out at the front.
