My Big Fat Gotcha

Creator: unknown

This is a just fatter/bulkier version of the classic gotcha fly. It has a v-rib body wrap over a bulky body wrap to make it heavier. The heavier fly will sink faster in deeper waters or fast current. Can be tied in many colors but this is the classic combination.
