There are a lot (I MEAN A LOT) of bonefish patterns out there these days, but there are a few patterns that really stand out as producers.
This is over at the Yellow Dog Flyfishing Adventures blog and written by Capt. Vaughn Cochran.
For years now the consensus among professional guides in the Bahamas for the best bonefsh fly has been the “Gotcha”. A famous fly with a great story to go with it. I’ve always heard it this way…. When Ted McVay and his son Jim were staying at the Andros Island Bonefish Club, Jim snipped some strands of carpet from the interior of their taxi as they were heading to the lodge and used them to tie a new fly. Every time a bonefish ate the fly, guide Rupert Leadon would say, “Gotcha.”
