It looks rather interesting! A little color should cheer it up a little

Ive seen flies made like that. They have a small nymph type blob being chased by a larger streamer. I have also seen a bunch that are two streamers swimming in tandem.

Considering that i'm a fly tyer too, i'm gonna built a smaller version of that one(not that i know how big that is ). When i'm gonna finish it i'll let you know how it does(after it gets a little bit warmer).
Till i make my own version of that lure i'll try tying a small fly in front what i already have.
I used to fish that way too with streamers, not on a fly equipement , but on a spinning one. With a shad or spoon underneath the streamers. I usually tyed 2 streamers above the weighted lure. I really had them going on those on one ocasion. Caught about 12 asp in about 4-5five hours, and about another 6 to 12 escaped, because i couldn't find a good knot for the "jumpers" i tyed the flyes on.

I have fished several bug-n-bass lures with no luck. More of a collector lure than a fish catcher. Made in 2 sizes.
Some are valuable if the right color.

I would not paint that lure. It is a collectable. I haven't seen many that color. Put that one up for safe keeping. Some of the bug-n-bass lures may sell for over $100.00 with their box. The one I have shown here sold for $243.00 on ebay. Just my honest opinion.
