Arno Matthee’s Milky Dream
|Hook:||Trey Combs Big Game, #2 (small yet strong enough for milkfish and just the right weight to sink into the feeding lanes).|
|Thread:||Flat waxed mono, chartreuse.|
|Body:||Sparse amounts of white and chartreuse calftail tied in only at the head, streamer-style.|
|Wing:||Chartreuse Antron Yarn tied in at the head and then folded at the end of the shank and tied back in at the head to form an elongated “halo,” which swells when wet, giving the fly its algae look.|
|Head:||Chartreuse or green thread with head cement.|
