Check 'em out.
Cool thing about these flies is that they don't have hooks. Gar have hard bony mouths that resist a hook, so you use these long, stringy hookless flies. When the gar eats the fly and chomps around a bit, the strands get caught in it's teeth. There is no hook-set in this deal, just give the gar time to chew on the fly a bit, then slowly draw tight to the fly. When the fish figures out that something ain't quite right, well, things can get real interesting. These things go absolutely beserk.
That's Rob in the photo below with a beauty.
And yes, wear some gloves. Gar got a mouthful of teeth and can draw blood.
Gotta get me some of that.
