crooked island recap…


Last November between Delta and Omicron variants, LOL, me and some of the boys escaped out of the states to the southern most end of the Bahamas for a week of flats flyfishing. Our mission was to explore a place called Crooked Island, which has a population of around 250 people, remote was an understatement. I have written an article for tail magazine that should be coming out soon, so I will not go into too much detail except the fact that Crooked Island is a really cool, safe destination with lots of hospitality and pretty good fishing. We stayed at the Crooked / Acklins Trophy lodge. You can book through The Fly Shop in Redding. Ask for Eric. The lodge had great food, clean rooms and fine staff. Bring the bug spray if the mosquitos like you, it was the only negative of the trip. We caught lots of different exotic species. If it’s bonefish you seek this is paradise. There are permit and triggerfish to play with but they are wary and you must commit full days to get those perfect shots to count. I recommend if your heading to the Bahamas and want to get away from it all to keep this place on your radar. We are going back in 2023!
