I think it depends on the size of the bonefish that you're going after. For the Bahamaian bonefish, I usually tie on a wing that goes just beyond the hook shank. A friend of mine took some of the longer ones but eventually ended up trimming the wing back a little.
Also, try it with a small clump of ginger bunny fur. Works great for me. I also do a version of a bonefish bitter. I tied the rubber legs more horizonally and I use the ginger bunny. Works great!
