The island chain of the Bahamas covers 100,000 square miles of the Atlantic Ocean extending over some of the clearest water in the world.
The 700 islands and uninhabited cays that make up this archipelago total an estimated land area of 5,382 square miles with something to suit everyone from relaxed fishing lodges to five star luxury and comfort; the Bahamas caters for all, from the dedicated fisher to the whole family.
Some lodges offer truly world class bonefishing, others offer a mixture of good fishing with a range of the more traditional beach holiday activities. It is vital to select the right destination and our first hand knowledge and impartial advice is paramount to making the correct decision.
The Bahamas is a destination synonymous with some of the best saltwater fishing in the world and has a reputation for producing bonefish of record size. There is a tremendous variety of fishing, both stalking in knee deep flats and poling through deeper waters. The Bahamas provide both beginners and experts alike the opportunity to enjoy the vigorous strike of a bonefish time and time again.
Another advantage of fishing in the Bahamas is that the guides speak English, a head start both for those new to, and a bonus for those experienced at fly fishing in saltwater. Bonefish are tricky to spot and easily spooked and a guide who can communicate his expertise fluently and quickly is a huge asset. Although bonefish are the main quarry, fly fishermen will also find tarpon in some areas and permit on the flats.
With a wide range of lodges, hotels and beach resorts, some suitable for families, some the haven for the fanatical travelling rod and others providing pampered escapism, the Bahamas, easy to get to and with excellent bonefishing, offers the fishers and their families a perfect saltwater destination.
