The Story

It's the red tail that does it. The Spawning Gotcha pattern is probably the most used bonefish fly in the tropics. This little fly for shallow flats takes that profile and adds the touch of red on the tail of the fly that represents a crustacean's egg sac. This fly has just that much more to entice the bonefish to turn and eat.

In sizes: 4, 6.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective Gotcha Variant Effective when shrimp are spawning, but also when the fish just need a change up from the standard Gotcha. Sometimes they just want Orange.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Effective In My Box On my last trip to the Bahamas this fly was very effective on the bonefish. It also proved to be difficult to hold onto as I found some time during the night that many of these had migrated to my fishing partners boxes.
