As the weather cools off, I can’y help but think about bone fishing in the Bahamas.

Temperatures are dipping into the bearable range here in Georgia. I’ve been spending a lot of evenings and mornings on the porch and I know I should be looking forward to crisp fall days and brightly colored leaves but my mind keeps drifting to the Bahamas. Even though winter is the best time for trout fishing here in the Southeast, and I will take advantage of it, it’s also the time of year I leave all that worries me behind and spend a little time in my happy place. The flats of the Bahamas.

Nothing makes me happier than leaving the soggy cold weather behind to soak up some sun, swim in the ocean, drink a little rum and stretch some fly line, with the help of some eager bonefish. These days those trips also mean the opportunity to connect with friends who come along year after year and to meet new friends who are just discovering the salt. It’s the high point on my calendar.


The Bahamas recharges my batteries. The sun warms my days and the bright smiles of my Bahamian friends warm my nights. My stress washes away and I forget the world as I focus on the fish. I don’t think I could get through the winter without it.
