In early November my lovely bride and I embarked on a two week trip to the Bahamas to visit several new Bahamian lodges I work with. Yes it is technically "work" for me, but who said work can't also be fun?
The Bahamas is a rich playground full of extremely remote wilderness environments, beautiful saltwater landscapes, incredible fishing opportunities and warm, friendly locals. Bahamians love to laugh, show their deep pride in their country and stop at nothing to make you feel welcome and looked after.
Grand Bahama island features some of the finest bonefishing opportunities in the world or world class sized fish. Bonefish grow to gargantuan proportions here and it's no wonder they fight so incredibly hard considering the huge numbers amounts of sharks and barracuda that inhabit these waters.
The beauty and charm of Abaco Island was unforgettable, with incredible numbers of bonefish and 20 lifetimes of explorable terrain in the famed "Marls". A vast, seemingly never-ending landscape of small mangrove island that provide incredible habitat for bonefish and tarpon.
Everywhere we went, it seemed we were family and there's nothing that endears you more to a foreign country then that of feeling truly welcome. Here are a few of my favorite shots from the trip.
