Fly Patterns

McVay’s Gotcha


Recreate fly patterns at home! Materials used in making this fly have been included below. Always keep in mind your local fly-fishing store will most likely have the materials referenced, and typically for less. Materials can also be found at Amazon or any other major on-line resource.

Fly-Tying Materials

  • Mustad 34007SS (#8)
  • UTC 210, fluorescent shell pink
  • Bead Chain Eyes, medium, silver
  • Krystal Flash, pearl
  • Sparkle Braid, pearl
  • Flashabou, pearl
  • Craft Fur, cream

Design Inspiration & Detail

Here’s a bread-n-butter fly for fishing South Florida and Caribbean flats. The natural colors and splash of pale pink are perfect for attracting all crustacean eating predators. As always, adding a splash of crystal flash or Flashabou really gives the fly some life. Be creative and change up colors. Options for upgrading the pattern are endless.

Target Species

This particular fly was designed to attract Bonefish and Permit – jacks and many other species will also take the fly.
