That is an interesting design. An EP Minnow fly of sorts, but... on a jig hook... using bunny strips. It has a nice look to it and will slim down in the water with some good action. Did you use zonkers or cross cut bunny? Also, do you have it weighted in any way to use a casting or vert. jig or is this more of a fly? If you are wanting it to have weight, but keep the shape you have..... you could possibly wrap lead wire or lead tape down the hook shank.

Looks good and i am guessing it will catch you a few fish. Smile : Co-Founder

i used a crimp on lead between the eyes......lead wrap makes it hang funny in the water. Its more for trolling or pulling under a cork real slow.
