I agree with the idea of coating the thread wraps with epoxy. These type of flies do catch fish, although I don't really see any difference in the amount of biteoffs and leader damage as compared to standard flies.
See this one for another example:

The only thing i might change on it is coating the thread wraps with epoxy if im chasing pike.

Nice fly and photo. What are the ingredients? Have you tried Keys style flies for pike before? I'm wondering if it helps prevent bite-offs to move the materials to the back of the hook.
Maybe you've already thought of this, but you can also slide a foam popper or diver head onto the hook and instantly make it a topwater fly .
