Norman Rolle Makes It Happen. photo by Louis Cahill

We were fishing along the edge of the mangroves at high tide when this big bone ate. As soon as the line came tight the fish ran hard into mangroves. Thinking fast our guide, Norman Rolle of Andros South, shouted “let him go! Loosen your drag!”. The bonefish zig-zagged thru the mangroves way into the backing. Norman hopped down off the platform and waded thur the mangroves, following the line to the fish and landing him. That’s a lesson I’ll never forget.

  1. I learned that technique from a guide on Acklins and it works. The only change I make is when fishing right on the edge of mangroves when there is a chance of the fish going right in, I loosen the drag before I cast, just in case.
