Fly Fishing in the Bahamas

Secret sandbars and secluded pink-sand beaches. Thousands of miles of irresistibly blue waters. In short, this is the world’s most idyllic setting for getting away. The best kept secret of The Bahamas is the country’s sheer size and diversity. With 16 major islands, The Bahamas is an unmatched destination, a heart-pounding adventure across 100,000 square miles of the world’s clearest ocean. Left virtually untouched, Andros Island is home to breathtaking blue holes, coral reefs, underwater wrecks, national forests, and more.

Informed anglers know that the Bahamas has some of the best bonefishing in the world, and Nervous Waters caters to them at our Bair’s Lodge on South Andros Island. When it’s time to fish hop on a skiff or wade the pristine sand flats with veteran guides who know these spectacular fisheries and their speedy inhabitants inside and out.

Fun fact: Bonefish can accelerate from 0 to 30 MPH in about 8 feet. That horsepower is what makes hooking them so addicting.

In addition to unparalleled bonefishing, the lodge offers manicured grounds, plush accommodations and taste-bud tantalizing menus inspired by local and international flavors and flare. Cold beer, fine wines and a selection of spirits are, of course, all-inclusive. Our fully stocked fly shop houses top brands like Sage and Patagonia on premise, and a non-pretentious, fun-loving vibe comes standard. Bottom line, Bair’s Lodge is the ideal place to source sunny skies, unpressured flats, and daily shots at large tailing bones.

At each lodge, our commitment is the same.

We work tirelessly before, during, and after the season to offer our fishing guests an authentic and rewarding experience. We pay attention to the smallest details—from being on time every time, to the quality of our wines, to the type of vehicles & boats we choose. Our Bahamas’ fly-fishing lodges host only a limited number of guests each week, again ensuring great service and plenty of “elbowroom” in the lodge and on the river.
