Gotcha fly patterns have been the hot ticket for bonefish and other saltwater species for a number of years, but by revamping the pattern with new variations, the fly stays fresh, and fish don’t get used to seeing the same fly.
Keep the colors toward more natural hues of cream, tan, light pinks, olives, and grays. Stay away from using a lot of bright color on the flies.
