A blast from the past for me, as I haven't targeted bones for a few years now....The Gotcha however has got to be the "Numero Uno" fish catcher in the "Charlie Style"

Took lots of fish for me and my friends in the times I fished for Bones, and a pal of mine who unfortunately has since suffered a serious stroke, whilst fishing for bigger stuff in the Seychelles, once caught more than 40 bones in a morning session on Alphonse using the Gotcha (What a waste of good GT fishing time!!!)

If you were allowed only one Bonefish fly in your fly box, I suspect that for most it would be the Gotcha.



Hook:- Mustad C70 SD, Tiemco 811s or similar Sizes 6 to 2
Thread:- Pink 8/0
Tail:- Pearl Mylar Tubing, shredded
Body:- Flat Pearl Braid
Eyes:- Bead chain in various sizes to suit size of fly and weight, or plastic bead chain for blind versions
Beard Hackle:- Tan Craft Fur, EP Fibres or my preference Arctic Fox with half or dozen or so strands of Pearl Krystal Flash over.
Head:- Slightly elongated and tapered Pink.
