To Long Island!

I really did want to go to Ragged Island, and may at some point in the future, but it won’t be this spring. For some reason, the substantial interest in the location didn’t translate into people actually committing to go. So, a change in plans.

March 18-25 I’ll be hosting a trip to Long Island. Long is a much easier place to get to since it has regular air service. The island is home to about 3,000 Bahamians, instead of the 68 on Ragged, so there are more services and infrastructure, but still no Starbucks.

The guides will also be more qualified, which is a substantial bonus. This lodge is run by the Knowles brothers, another fine Bahamian fishing family in the long tradition of Bahamian families who keep bonefishing a family affair.

At this point, I think we only have one more slot open, so please get in touch quickly if you are interested. The cost is $1,995 per person, so this is one of the best deals out there for a week of guided bonefishing.

  1. I’ve fished with the Knowles family (Ivan is the father) the last two years in May. Lots of shallow water wading. Used mostly lighter flies in a size 6. I found a couple of unlikely patterns that worked very well under certain conditions, I could send you a sample or two when I get set up to tie in a couple of weeks. I have some other observations and suggestions that will are too long and involved to share here.

  2. Is this going to be like pinky knowledge does with the assisted wade guiding where the guide puts a group on a flat. Trying to learn more as this could be a great trip. Thanks

  3. Nope, this is fully guided, not the assisted DIY.
