North Andros via Chris Santella

Chris Santella put together that book “50 Places  to Fly Fish Before You Kick the Bucket

Every once in a while he puts out some bonefishy goodness and I spotted this post about North Andros.

The rich lore of bonefishing on North Andros pulls almost as powerfully as the present possibilities of the island’s endless flats.  North Andros served as an incubator for nascent grey ghost fly fishing efforts half a century ago, and was home to the Bang Bang Club and the Lighthouse Club – two of the earliest bonefish lodges.  Wall Street Brahmin sailed south on their yachts to hire Bahamians to help them hunt elusive bones, and the angling literati of the day – Lee Wulff, Joe Brooks and the like – followed closely on their heels.  The fishery has stood the test of time.

Yeah, that is a pretty picture... Brian O'Keefe snapped it.

Wanna go?

Me too.
