Gotcha!

the original Gotcha

The Gotcha is perhaps the top producing bonefish pattern ever developed, and this bright pearlescent fly gets the attention of bonefish all over the globe. Our article on Tying the Gotcha can be found at this link. Useful in a wide range of conditions, and available in a range of sizes. The standard "Tan" version is pictured above. We now offer several variations on this popular bonefish fly, including a Cream version which is excellent for white sand flats in the Bahamas and other locations. Also available are a"Lead Eye" Gotcha for deeper water, the "Blind Gotcha" (tied without eyes for very shallow water situations), and a version with a weedguard for fishing flats with snags or weeds. The "Bandit" and the "Gotcha Special" are the same fly pattern in different color variations (see photo below). The "Gold Eye" Gotcha is a standard tan Gotcha made with gold bead chain eyes. The Bunny Gotcha is a modern variation of this fly which features lead eyes for weight and a rabbit fur wing for maximum action in the water. See also the "Rubber Legs" Gotcha style shown below.

The slim-profile "Bonefish Box" by Anglers Image shown below is probably the best box we have ever seen for carrying standard bonefish patterns - modern "slit foam" design holds flies securely and is easy to insert the flies in. This box will hold approximately 24 standard sized bonefish flies, but still fits easily in a shirt pocket - something that many boxes are advertised to do, but few achieve. The lid of this box is clear, which allows the angler to view the contents of the box before opening it - a real advantage while wading the flats or preparing to tie on a new fly from the deck of a bouncing boat. Dimensions are 5 3/4" x 3 5/8" x 7/8" (14.5 cm x 9 cm x 2.2 cm). Click photo shown below to view the box empty.
