Classic Gotcha Bonefish Fly

Creator: Jim McVay

The Gotcha is one of the most well known and successful bonefish patterns of all time. It is a shrimp imitation that also looks a bit like a baitfish when tied with a long wing. It is very easy to tie this super productive bonefish fly and works just about everywhere in the world.
