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 It has worked very well for us over the past several years on Exuma and at Christmas Island.
When sight fishing, look over your shoulder from time to time, you never know who's behind you
