Bahama Bones on Discovery
I don't pretend to be the most graceful fly fisherman, but whenever the situation calls for it, I break out the fly rod and I try my best. This was just that situation! We were in the Bahamas (Chub Cay to be exact), we were fishing with a couple of local guides who grew up on these waters, we were going skinny in the Beavertail Mosquito, and even able to get out and wade for bonefish . . . can you say "perfect recipe for bonefish on a fly?"
Just because all of the right elements were there doesn't mean I didn't have to work for it. We spent two days running the flats around Chub Cay with two different local guides, and both days were really hot and hard work, but I'd do it all over again. The wind was howling, but that didn't keep the hundreds of bonefish from showing up. I have never seen that many bonefish in one spot at one time, incredible! Make sure you tune in to Saturday's episode "Bahama Bones" at 7 a.m. on the Discovery Channel, and see some awesome drone footage of a school of bonefish.
I've been a lot of beautiful places on this planet and Chub Cay has to be right up there toward the top of the list. We were lucky to be able to load our Beavertail Mosquito on the Star Brite boat and cross over by water from Ft. Lauderdale to Chub. That was an experience all in itself. Then, once we got there the Chub Cay Resort & Marina rolled out the red carpet for us and made it really hard for us to leave!
If y'all ever get the chance to head to the Bahamas, make sure you put Chub Cay on your stops! The beach, the resort, the pool, the hospitality and the fishing are absolutely incredible.
Until next week . . . tight lines,
