My father and I have been fly fishing together for the last 10 years, but had never tried saltwater fishing on a fly. To celebrate my Dad’s 60th birthday, Fly Water booked us at Bair’s Lodge in South Andros, Bahamas for a four day trip. For a first time “bonefisherman”, we had tremendous success! Our first day we caught 10-14 fish each and also caught two great barracuda, one was over 20 lbs! Our second and third days were more challenging, battling the wind can be tough, but we still managed to catch 3-4 fish each on those days. Our last day was great. After a tough morning we ended up having a great afternoon and catching 7-8 fish back to back right after lunch.
I would highly recommend Bair’s Lodge. The couple running the lodge were fantastic and the accommodations were very nice. Be prepared, this is a fishing trip! No rest for the weary!
Thanks again, Rachel, for all your help in setting up our trip.
