The owner says

Guided bonefishing charters in the Bahamas have long been a popular and legendary pursuit. Bonefishing, and in particular fly fishing in Southern Abaco has been one of those closely guarded secrets passed on quietly from one fly enthusiast to another, hoping they wouldn't tell too many of their friends. Each day, with each new group of anglers, we learn more about why no one wanted to talk about the huge bonefish, the incredible numbers of permit and the legitimate shots at tarpon that are possible in Abaco.

The fishing grounds that surround Blackfly Lodge and the new town of Schooner Bay form six distinct zones each rich in a variety of species and large enough to support the entire lodge fleet if weather were to force all boats to fish in one zone. Only the most severe weather would cause a cancellation. Permit Each zone supports similar species yet each has a unique offering in both species and habitat. Bonefish, Permit, Mutton Snappers, Sharks, Barracuda, and Tarpon are among the species found in these waters and given the number and the size of the fish we observed makes the fishing at Schooner Bay simply world class.

The Blackfly lodge boats are on trailers and can be launched at the Schooner Bay ramp or trailered to other locations within twenty minutes of Schooner Bay.

Tarpon
In the future we will be exploring the vast fishery of South Abaco and that will include days of exploratory fishing and mapping out the six zones that surround Schooner Bay. Also we will be fishing what we think are the best Permit grounds in the Bahamas, stalking silver tails on remote unfished flats and even breaking out the big sticks for our newly discovered fishery for silver kings. So come join us in flyfishing Abaco at the Blackfly Lodge!

had a memorable day .Excellent guide in Kendall. Nice boat and equipment. Lodge is very nice with excellent gear, and many pictures to review on the wall. Sight fishing on the flats for bone fish is great day on the water.
