(Bahamas) Crooked Island Bonefish. Bennett-Watt, vol. 55. The Bahamas, though one of the original flats destinations, continues to bring forth new and relatively uncharted waters for fly fishing for bonefish. Crooked Island is one of those pristine and relatively undiscovered bonefish destinations. Buccaneer Travel and their local partners run a very pleasant operation with good equipment, wonderfully friendly and helpful guides and staff. This is a look at Crooked Island when it was not at its best as far as wind conditions were concerned, so you can just imagine how great it could be with good conditions. Crooked Island is affordable and pleasant fishing. Fly Tying... Lenny Moffo also shows you how to tie a "Buckshot Bonefish" pattern from his Hooked On Fly Tying video series.
VHS, 60 minutes.
(Bahamas) Long Island Bonefish. Bennett-Watt, vol. 54. Long Island is one of the Buccanneer Travel bonefish destinations in the Bahamas. David Bendix and his local Bahamaian partners have put together a bonefish destination that's simple, clean and efficient with a vast array of hard white flats. Though April may be one of the worst months for bonefish on the flats, because of spawning season, bonefish were still found in abundance. Lovely People... Lots of history, good boats, friendly, skilled guides and Bonefish. What more can you ask for in a fly fishing destination? Fly Tying... Lenny Moffo from his Hooked On Fly Tying video series ties the "Bead Head Bonefish Fly," a pattern he has found effective all over the flats of Florida and the Bahamas.
