Bahamas Fly Fishing Report Nov & Dec 2017
RedfishCHUCK tied me a batch of new flies for this trip
Took a new approach and bought a ladder from True Value in Freeport and dragged it with me to my wading spots around Old Bahama Bay
The height enabled me to fish the higher tides as the water was coming in and bringing with it feeding bonefish
Some fish ran outside my casting range forcing me to stalk them
At another spot I found feeding triggers on the shoreline
And this is the only location I have found that you can catch grill size yellowtails from shore on a fly
Mutton Snapper added to the specie count
I like the ladder idea. If you learned to use stilts, you could do the same thing and cover even more water.
grace finds goodness in everything ...
Stilts are funny and wish I could learn to that.
In the last two years I have worked those flats for hours walking up and down for 1/2 to 3/4 mile in each direction. Then I became conditioned to stand on a rock for two hours at a time as I waited for tide change only to get chased out with high tide. Cant sight fish in waist deep water. The ladder is a game changer for me. Plus I can bring a small cooler of cold beverages :-)
