We often see large schools of anchovies or more commonly called glass minnows on the shoals and beaches of Cape Romano. I wanted a fly that was translucent, sparse and representative of these little minnows. The fly works anywhere you find small baits. Great night fly under lights, around docks or for snook on the beach.
I tie this with white Slinky Flash, pink glow-in-the-dark Flashabou and a set of Asymmetric Pelagic Eyes. Vary the size from 8 up to size 1 or so depending on what size baits you are seeing.
