1 Fly Fishing: “The Bonefishing Capital of the World”, Andros has the most extensive area of sight fishing flats found anywhere on the planet. We are located at Stafford Creek on North Andros, there are miles and miles of waterways & ocean flats right nearby, from London Creek, to Mastic Bay, to Conch Sound. Go north to the world renowned Joulter Cays - the flats are endless, or head west to Red Bays. The West Side is a place uninhabited, unexplored, untouched - a “Liquid Safari” - you'd never know what you'll find, everything might just be BIGGER than you think. The west coast is one of the better destinations in the Bahamas for Tarpon (best during the warmer months) and Permits.
If you want to fish on you own, you can walk to the beach in front of the settlement, or nearby beach, you'll sure find tailing or mudding bonefish at the right tide. You can also explore Stafford Creek, don't let the name creek fools you, it's a vast river system of shallow water and deeper channels, even blueholes. What that translates to is skinny water: Bonefish; mangroves & channels: big Snappers, Jacks & Barracuda; blueholes & brackish water: Umm - Tarpon?!
