"The Bahamas have a long fishing tradition and are still today one of the best destinations in the Caribbean. Imagine: Endless flats and big schools of Bonefish searching for Shrimp in skinny water. To catch a tailing Bonefish on sight here is part of every saltwater angler’s dream. But I’m also looking forward to present our flies to Barracudas and other predatory species." (Peter)
Unfortunately, very few places on the planet offer this scenario. It’s easy to find lovely bonefish destinations but most of them require a boat and a guide – just to get you to the fish. We do know of a few accessible bonefish spots but they seem to have gotten way too much attention – the result being shy and spooky bonefish.
Good bonefishing on your own – at a fair budget – have turned into the fishing of dreams and for years, the vivid guys at GET AWAY FLY FISHING have been dreaming of the perfect bonefish trip for those wanting to stalk the shallows for bones on their own. However, while searching for perfect bonefish flats, one place has always reclaimed their attention. Acklins Island in the Bahamas. Only recently they finally convinced their partners in the Bahamas to set up such an European program; exactly the way GETAWAY and their clients have always dreamed of: Long days – fishing different areas every day at an own pace.
They have designed what they believe is the perfect bonefish program for European fly anglers. The surroundings are stunning and Acklins Island has more great bonefish habitat than anywhere else these guys have fished. Tailing fish in ankle deep water, on white sand flats and in the mangroves – and most importantly, you can wade and stalk them yourself. Bonefishing doesn’t get any better than this.
On these bonefish trips the novice bonefish angler will find himself in a relaxed environment and he will enjoy the company and knowledge of experienced tour leaders and fellow anglers. The skilled bonefish angler will definitely appreciate the opportunity of spending extra hours on the flats. Feel like going? We do!
