With over 50 years of angling under my belt, bonefishing in the Bahamas is the best I’ve ever had, writes DEREK EVANS
‘ELEVEN O’CLOCK, moving left to right, 30ft out. Trust me on this one, Derek. Strip, strip, stop, strip,” Ishi whispers. And whizzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. My first bonefish is on and ripping line from the reel at a rate of knots. I’m down to backing line as the run continues across the flats. Will this fish ever tire? My introduction to fly-fishing in the Bahamas is complete.
Even the Irish are going bonefishing… why am I not on the water somewhere???
