Looking for fly pattern to match isopod

Not sure if we have these in Puget Sound, but if anyone has any ideas on a fly pattern to match this isopod species, I'd appreciate it if you'd share it. May need to buy a 16 weight to cast it.

Forget the dubbing. Just stretch some doubled-up saran wrap over the back of an entire rabbit and stick it on a 12/0 hook...maybe add a few extra 6" zonker strips for more legs. A few wraps of twine for segmentation?
I can tell you that if I got a strike on it I would be breaking it off - I do NOT want to know what would eat that!
