The Gotcha! bonefish fly is very popular and effective for fishing bonefish in the flats. It looks a lot like a shrimp swimming in the water when fished properly. Its fairly easy to tie and uses minimal materials.  

Hook: Gamakatsu SL45 - size 6
Tail: Mylar rope with the inner rope removed
Body: Pearl braid
Thread: Danville 210 flat waxed - hot orange
Wing: Craft Fur - tan
Flash: Krystal flash - gold
weight: Bead chain eyes

Check out the video below, or for more information check out my website in the link below the video.

Thanks, I'll change that. I'm pretty bad at spelling.

Crazy Charlies look a very similar, maybe Gatcha is a new variant.

 

Just thought.

As I stated in the video, it is a variant of the crazy Charlie. So yes you are correct in your thought.
