Back before i started tying my own jigs, i used plastics exclusively. I think I have every color combo imaginable in plastic. My hands down favorite color plastic was monkey milk. Now that i only use my hand ties I decided to tie a monkey milk jig of my own. This is my version of monkey milk [Linked Image]
What does your version of monkey milk look like?

Good looking jig. Looks like you got plenty of backups too.

Looks good, but now I need to go look at the soft plastic monkey milk, lol!

After looking at what pictures I could find, I am thinking maybe the FL White with Silver Crystal would be good? I can't really see what colors the specks in that soft plastic are.

This is the monkey milk color I'm trying to replicate skip. It seems to have a blue hue to it and the flakes are black. I would like to see what you come up with

That is an interesting color especially with that Blue iridescence or it sure looks like that in this picture. Am thinking that is the key to that soft plastic color, it looks like a baitfish color.
