I would be more concerned with it getting tangled during the loop. don't they use those when jigging off the piers? To me it seems like more hassle than using a standard fly, but that is how new things are discovered.
Good luck with it and let us know the results.

Thumbs up

Sounds like a good idea. Is it flashy at all like the mirro lure? Good luck!
