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 "Rubber Legs" Gotcha is a new version of the classic Gotcha style - sometimes referred to as the "Sili Charlie". "Rubber Legs" style bonefish flies are very effective in many locations - these silicone rubber legs add dynamic movement to this most productive pattern.
