T and T Bonefish

That’s Trinidad and Tobago, not Thomas and Thomas.

Looks like my folks might be headed to the Caribbean next year with the most likely spot being Trinidad and Tobago.

Now, when I think of T&T I tend to think more of World Cup Qualifying than bonefish.  My dad asked if I had posted anything up about T&T.  Turns out, I hadn’t.  A quick web search revealed why I hadn’t… turns out there isn’t much there in terms of bonefish because there aren’t many classic flats there.

From MyTabago.info:

Tobago is a reasonable, but not ideal, destination for the salt-water fly fisher. There is a scarcity of flats, so essential for bonefish. However, the flats at Friendship (between the Crown Point airport and Lowlands) are popular and ideal for bones, snook, snapper and the elusive permit.

One guide, listed on the above website that I found a few references to on different message boards was Kester Herbert.  Reports about Kester were positive.

I'm sure there is a lot to offer, just not a whole mess of bonefish, it turns out.
