Duranglers co-owner Tom Knopick just got back from his 2nd annual hosted trip to Andros South (April 23-30, 2011). The trip was great and a good time was had by all.
Success on the Bonefish flats has lots to do with weather conditions and with sunny skies you just get more shots. On the second day of the trip Tom and Jordan were fishing with Andros South Guide Ellie. Ellie is a great guide with awesome eyes and great communication skills. Tom was on deck getting only few shots with cloudy skies and not hooking up. It was decided to switch anglers hoping it might change their luck so Jordan was up.
After only 10 minutes Ellie Polled the skiff around a small Mangrove Island in the lee side of the wind. The water went to glass, the sun came out and right on cue a school of Bones appeared 25 feet in front of the boat. Jordan’s first cast missed the school to the left and the 2nd cast missed to the right but the school just kept slowly cruising. The next cast was long and right through the center of the fish but they did not spook just parted then came back together. Once back together the school did an about-face and swam right over the fly, two strips and fish one!
Andros is without question one of the great Bonefish destination on the planet and Tom will be hosting a trip again next year. The dates will be April 21-28, 2012. Join us for a trip of a lifetime!
