Fly Fishing in the Abacos
Our home base is the beautiful island of Great Abaco in The Bahamas which offers some of the most breathtaking saltwater fly fishing in the world. At 130 miles long it is all shoreline, flanked by flats that draw schools of up to a few hundred bonefish at a time.
It is in the saltwater flats, or the numerous creeks and shallow bays of the Abacos that this specialty sport of artful casts, of timing and rhythm, and of lures so delicate and light they hardy seem to exist at all on the end of your line.
For those who have only ever cast from a reel, it is the slow learned lesson of calm, measured movement and timing over force, taught by a captain seasoned on the local waters. But for the experienced angler, it is the thrill of bringing the once fresh water sport of fly fishing to the gin clear flats of Abaco in the hunt for redfish, tarpon, bonefish, permit, mangrove or grey snappers, barracuda or lemon sharks. No wonder Bahamas bonefish fly fishing is becoming so popular!
