Fly fishing in Bahamas

The best way to get good at fly fishing for bonefish is to go where you get lots of opportunities.

In other words, bring your fly rod to the Bahamas.

Lots of fish and not a lot of fishing pressure add up to lots of fun, especially for novice fly rodders and those who have been frustrated by the educated bonefish in Biscayne Bay and the Florida Keys.

Despite having plenty of fish, the bountiful Bahamian flats have relatively few anglers.

Most all of the islands in the Bahamas have flats with bonefish, and anglers can choose where to fish based on the other things they or their family members like to do. The website has helpful information on a variety of activities and places to stay.

Probably the most important consideration is having a good guide. During a cruise several years ago, I was wading a flat when the guide took off with the bait to catch his own bonefish, leaving me with a bait-less hook as a school of fish swam in front of me. Then there was the Bimini guide who knew of only two places to catch bonefish. Another guide was already fishing each spot, so we were out of luck.
