Angling on the Fly does South Caicos

Saw a trip report posted on the blog of Angling on the Fly of a trip to South Caicos with Beyond the Blue Bonefish Charters.

It looks alright… ya know… if you like endless white sand flats, bonefish up to 8 pounds, air boats… I think I’d be down with that.

South Caicos is a great place if you are money-phobic.  A week for a single angler is $4,760, double is $4,100.  Cheap and Bonefish are standing on opposite sides of the middle school dance… clearly this isn’t going to be the tune that gets them to dance.  If you have the scratch, though… sounds great.

That looks fun: South Caicos

Came across a message board posting (see it here) for a trip to South Caicos.  This Caicos is part of the Turks and Caicos Islands.  Place looks beautiful with just miles and miles of wadable flats with some good looking bonefish.

As with most of these kinds of things, this is not a cheap kind of thrill.  The price tag, after airfare and tips is $4,500 or there abouts.  This trip is offered by Angling on the Fly.  Of course, that trip is about $3,500 too expensive for me at the present time (see, I’m an optimist).

The place is tiny… less than 2000 people live there, which is going to limit your options for DIY in terms of services offered.  There is at least one B&B and a few restaurants. There is a general S. Caicos info page here.  A search for DIY fishing reports doesn’t turn much up.  There is reference to a really large sand flat that’s hard to get to, but beyond that… can’t find much.

Another place for the “That looks fun” file.

S. Caicos Bonefish… yes please.
