The Milkfish Snack is designed to imitate a combination of food sources much like an egg sucking leech. There are a number of different species of plankton which milkfish feed upon, and their color is quite prevalent in their otherwise tiny existence. Zooplankton commonly is a orange to pinkish color, while Copopods are a brilliant blue. Milkfish feed in a grazing type fashion and will focus their efforts on current lines where these plankton will be pushed together. Plankton often latches onto free floating Spirulina, a type of sea weed, which then attracts the milfish to get a concentrated mouthful of food. Tied with rams wool so that the fly will very slowly decent in the water column, allowing it to stay in the zone longer.
