Last year I had the privilege to be part of FIBFest at Andros South. Along on that trip was Tom Larimer.
Looks like Tom just made it back. He took a hosted trip to Andros South and despite some less-than-ideal weather, they had a good time.
I envy him for getting back there… for hanging out at the Slack Tide Bar and chatting with the guides on the ride out to the West Side. Of course, I can’t complain. I’m headed to Cuba here in about 2.5 weeks with Yellow Dog and that does not suck.
One of the things about fly fishing that I love is that you both get to see new and wonderful places and you also get to develop some “home water.” For trout I have home water on the Upper Sac and McCloud. For Carp I have Calero. For bonefish I don’t have a place that I know well, a place I keep coming back to. I’d love to have South Andros be that place, but that seems financially and logistically out of the question. Glad that Tom is getting a feel for South Andros and maybe beyond swinging for steelhead in Oregon he’s getting a sense of the moods of Andros.
