    HI Adrian,

    The Gotcha was a very popular fly at one stage. Will do a S.B.S. for you soon.

    Try this link ...

    Gives fairly clear instruction as to tying process and desired result. Have found that as substitute for craft fur (which is pretty cool though somewhat thin on the ground here in ZA) you can go 'typical' charlie route of calftail wing or sparse tan / shrimp polar fibre & fox hair blend. A lot also depends on what you're gonna be fishing for & conditions - have seen these tied ultra sparse for typical bonefishing in skinny ultra clear water and conversely 'fuller' for local surf & estuarine conditions. Very good fly & simple enough to concoct. Good luck!
