The Mojito is tied just like the Orange Crush only using chartreuse. I really like chartruese flies for summer fishing here in the 10,000 Islands. They work for all species and especially well for tarpon.
Start with a Gamakatsu SC17 3/0 and attach a small bunch of chartreuse bucktail at the bend of to prevent fouling of the wing. You can also add a small line of Clear Cure UV Goo on the underside of the rabbit strip to stiffen and prevent fowling.
Add a strip of Magnum Chartreuse/Black Barred Rabbit on top of the bucktail. At this point I add a set of black bead chain eyes at the head.
Attach Two-tone Chartreuse/Black 1/8" Crosscut Rabbit Strip and palmer to the bead chain eyes. Whip finish and add head cement.
Add 3 sets of hot-tipped chartruese legs and you have the Mojito XXX.
