At first glance this photo might look like one of the most generic photos in fly fishing – An angler, on the deck of a flats boat, holding a fly. However, this photo is a little different than most, and we think it says a lot about our fishery on South Andros. For example..
- That ain’t no bonefish fly. That’s a barracuda fly. A fly for a fish receives little credit from the angling community, but receives no complaints upon being hooked. We have a shocking number of barracuda at Andros South, and most of our guests are pleasantly surprised how much fun they are to fish for.
- He’s holding the ‘cuda fly. “Uh, yeah we know..” Well, the fact that the angler is holding his fly in the ready position means that he’s actively searching for barracuda, not just grabbing a spare rod when the moment presents itself. Some of our guests do actually take a break from bonefish to target barracuda. Yes, it’s that much fun.
- That’s a good representation of a barracuda fly. Wondering what kind of fly a barracuda will eat? Here’s a prime example. As long as it’s long, flashy, and attached with wire, you’re probably in the game.
