What do I need to know?

Packing for your trip to The Abacos?  we can recommend a few things to add to your suitcase such as the types of flies to bring and articles of clothing to prepare you for Bahamian weather.


Should I bring my own flies? 

Yes!  Flies are not available locally so remember to bring your own.  We recommend the following:

Bonefish: Size 8 & 10 for flats fishing while wading: fish to be 6-12 inches of water:
I would recommend  Crazy Charlies, Small Hermit Crab flies, Gotcha.

Permit Flies: Del Brown's Permit Fly, McCrab, Other crab patterns

What should I wear?

Slacks/shorts, lightweight cotton or supplex nylon long sleeved shirts (for sun protection) light colours/fabric fleece sweater or jacket (for early mornings & evenings & running in the boat) Shows Rubbers soled non slip for boating or canvas sneakers or Tevas. We highly recommend anyone who plans to do a bit of wading while on vacation to wear neoprene booties or wet socks. For a fishing hat we recommend a long front visor with a dark underbill as this enhances polarizing qualities of sunglasses and it must shade face, neck and ears.
