Yes, bigger pike.
The tails are not glued together like a double bunny. That's just too rigid for me. With these two tails freely swinging in the water, the fly has great action.
For the tail gaurd, I use 24 gauge galvanized wire in a loop under the bottom tail (just as the material order is listed). That may seem like heavy wire, but with two magnum zonker strips it's necessary. The marabou collar hides the loop.
