Andros Island, the Bahamas, is world famous for fly fishing for bonefish. There are a number of very good reasons that Andros Island is called the "Bonefishing Capital of the World." There are very large numbers of bonefish in many different areas around the island. The average size of bonefish on Andros Island--4 to 6 pounds--is larger than the average size in other well known areas, such as the Florida Keys and Belize. You probably have a better chance of catching a Trophy Bone--8 to 10 pounds or more--on Andros Island than anywhere else on the planet. There are many different types of water to fish and there is the awesome beauty of the Bahamas.
Hermon's Andros Bonefishing provides everything you need to experience the challenge and exhilaration of bonefishing at its best: excellent, highly experienced guiding, comfortable accommodations, and excellent food. We will meet all of your needs while you fish the beautiful waters of the Bahamas, chasing bonefish in flats that stretch for miles. Hermon Bain has been fishing these waters since he was a little boy and has been guiding for almost twenty years. Watch his dad fish Bowen Sound:Hermon's Dad On Bowen Sound. His newly built accommodations feature four apartments with a spacious gathering and a dining facility for breakfast, lunch, dinners, lies, and libations. In addition to enjoying a wide range of bonefishing experiences, you will sleep comfortably and eat well--dining on the home cooking of Hermon's wife, Antoinette. You will dine on a wide range of seafood caught in local waters and other fine food.
There is also the option--for the adventurous--of camping at various locations (with most camping equipment and all food provided) while you fish different areas of Andros. Hermon has been camping all over Andros Island since he was a boy and knows all the best places to camp.
Many feel that bonefish are--pound for pound--the strongest of all fish. Their heart-pounding runs will have the line screaming off your reel. Their spookiness will challenge your skills of stalking and presentation.
Now that summer of 2010 is approaching, it's time to start thinking about Tarpon and Permit. Although Bonefishing is our main activity, we love fishing for Tarpon and Permit. There are resident Tarpon on the West Side, but the summer brings large numbers of migratory Tarpon as well. The fishing pressure on the West Side is light, so these Tarpon are much easier to catch than those in the Florida Keys. Permit are found in steadily increasing numbers in Fresh Creek as the summer progresses. Summer fishing can be some of the best there is. Bonefishing is still possible and the rhythm of the day can be structured so everyone is out of the sun midday, enjoying great fishing in the early and late parts of the day.
We hope our website will provide helpful information for those who love fly fishing for bonefish and want to learn more about Andros Island and the wonderful bonefishing it offers. And we hope we will stimulate those bonefishers who have not yet experienced Hermon's Andros Bonefishing, and those fly fishers who have not yet experienced the thrill of bonefishing, to give Hermon's a try. We have recently posted a number of videos on YouTube that will give you an idea of the experience you will have at Hermon's: Hermon's YouTube Videos.
Contact us and make arrangements to have a fly fishing adventure you will never forget.
