Thanks for lunch! I promiss I'll let you win all the skins ;)

Here's the recipe:

Hook: 6 Daiitchi 2546

Body/Tail: Pearl Madiera (or DiamondBraid).

Eyes: Beadchain (vary weight according to desired sinkrate)

Wing: Tan Arctic Fox.

Flash: Double strand of olive krystal flash.

Head: Orvis FluroRed "G" silk thread - elongated "Gotcha" style.

This is a variation on McVeigh's Gotcha. Arctic fox has great mobility and the red head really turns them on :D It has worked very well for us over the past several years on Exuma and at Christmas Island.
