Bonefish School Report

The View From My Office

By Louis Cahill

It is impossible to overstate how excited I am to be back in the Bahamas.

I’m currently at Bair’s Lodge for three weeks, teaching the Bonefish School. It wasn’t 100% clear that I would be ab;e to come until right before Christmas. Getting the thumbs up from my doctor was a pretty good Christmas present. Being here with 33 great anglers from around the world would be a honor at any point, but right now its a real blessing.

I’m taking it pretty easy. I stayed behind today to rest. My eye was getting irritated but a few steroid drops and a nap seems to have worked wonders. I feel sure I’ll be back in the saddle tomorrow.

I’m happy to report that I am catching, and more importantly, seeing some bonefish!

I have a whole host of new challenges to be sure, but I’m working through it and having a blast. It’s strong medicine, being able to do the things I love. Bonefishing, and helping folks become better anglers. I even shot a few new videos today so those will be on the site before long. Thanks for all of your patience.

2020 is shaping up to be another great season here on South Andros. Being here, it’s almost hard to remember how devastated parts of the Bahamas are from Dorian. South Andros remains untouched and the fishing has been great. We are seeing lots of big fish, although no one has hit the 10 pound mark yet. Well, we’re only tree days in and those fish are here in good numbers. It’s just a matter of time.

Last night we were working on casting on the beach when huge shark swam by just fifteen feet off the shore. That got everyone really excited. A couple of the guys decided they’d be taking their swimsuits home unused. 

Tight Lines!

  1. I’m of an age to know how you feel. Take credit for where you are and what you do as I am just a guy who dreams about fishing the places you get to experience. I truly hope you can continue experiencing fly fishing and writing about it so at least vicariously I can experience it to.

  2. I know you love being in the Bahamas and getting down there is clearly good for your soul, comes through in the writing. Wishing you all the best with your recovery, and of course hoping you catch a few more fish in the coming weeks as well my friend!
