Fly Fishing trips in the Bahamas: known for diversity of award winning fish including gigantic bonefish
From professional anglers to beginners, casting a line from the shore’s dusty sands or record-setting deep-sea fishing, the Bahamas has a key location for each and every fishing style.
The quality level of finishing in the Bahamas is the highest in the world with over 50 world records set here. It is easy to travel, either by boat or buggy, which means you can be trolling for award winning marlin in the morning and fly fishing for the mutton snapper in the afternoon. The variety spreads through 700 different islands, all part of the Bahamas Archipelago. This diversity of choice gives any angler a fair try at the fly-fishing Grand Slam by taking bonefish, permit and tarpon on the same day.
Fly rods between a 00 and 3 weight are used for small fish species like panfish; 5 to 7 weight rods are best for trout or mid-sized fish while rod sizes up to a 14 are used on large fish- hooking into tuna and even marlin on a fly rod. Depending on the target species, you will need essentially either sinking or floating line. Sinking line will bring the fly to deep depths and is used in lake fishing. Floating line allows the fly to stay either on the water or below the water’s surface, again, depending on the conditions and what type of fish you are targeting.
