Blackfly Bonefish Club via the Miami Herald

SCHOONER BAY, GREAT ABACO ISLAND, BAHAMAS — After nearly 20 years as a founding pastor of the 500-member New Providence Community Church in Nassau, Clint Kemp was starting to burn out. So he took three months off and went fly fishing. After praying, casting, and catching and releasing many fish, he decided it was time for a new career.

“Instead of a pulpit, I have a poling platform,” Kemp, 45, said.

Sue Cocking (yes, unfortunate) writes up another bonefishing story for the Miami Herald focused on the Blackfly Bonefish Club. Doesn’t sound like she had totally awesome fishing, but such is life and fishing.

The club even has a facebook page. The club is an extension of Black Fly Outfitter out of Jacksonville, FL.

looks nice. find more pics on their facebook pag.

Hooked on the Fly visits Black Fly Bonefish Club

Bonefish on TV… I like it.  Wait… I have cable and not satellite… so I don’t get to see this show?  WTF?  Well, you privileged bastidos who get to watch Hooked on the Fly will soon get to see the Black Fly Bonefish Club out on Abaco.

On the Black Fish blog, you can read how things are going…

That day, as Clint pulled away from the dock he pointed the bow of the skiff not in the usual direction leading to the nearby flats, but toward the deep blue water instead. Not long underway, they came upon a rare sighting of a whale enjoying the day by lolling at the surface. After a brief time of whale watching they moved on to find a promising weed line and in short order had two nice mahi mahi in the fish box tagged for the evening meal. Making the run back to the flats they were rewarded with a hour of tailing bonefish before calling it a day.

Sounds like a pretty nice day.
