Gotcha fly for Bonefish

I prepare a trip to BAHAMAS in March and I am tying some GOTCHA fly.
1 - What do you think of using some rabbit fur or marabou for the wing instead of Demone Hair or Fish Hair?
2 - Could I use some others colors (different from white and Pink) to interest Bonefish ?

Best Regards

You can tie gotchas with lots of other hair like rabbit, Arctic fox or coyote. I tie them in many colors including tan, pink, orange, chartreuse, olive, and brown.

Gotcha Fly

There are a lot of Bonefish flies and the Gotcha is one of the best, I always liked it it the traditional color but like any other fly pattern colors can be limitless. The fish will always tell you if you went to far with your imagination.

I always found Craft Fur a good choice to make them and the colors come in a wide spectrum and isvery reasonable price wise.
