Gink and Gasoline ran a story recently that featured Andros South guide Freddy (or Freddie, not sure which is right).
This made me happy because it made me think of my own trip to Andros South and my day with Freddy on the water.
Freddy was the biggest man with the smallest boat and was by far the most enjoyable guide I had that whole week. Freddy was just plain fun. He sang from the poling platform and joked and laughed and did all this while managing to put us on fish.
We ran into a bit of engine trouble that day while out on the West Side. That’s a long trip back with an engine that can’t get up on a plain, but Freddy was calm and smooth about even this. He suggested it was a good opportunity to troll for cudas, which we did and I picked up my first decent sized cuda.
The day was awesome and it does reinforce the idea that attitude matters… your attitude and that of your guide.
