The opening day of our bonefishing season at Andros South Season is less than ten days away (ahem, but who’s counting, right?). That means our team is in the process of gearing up for those long walks on the flats, and we hope many of you are too.
With that in mind, today we’re coming at you with our thoughts on what we think is one of the most innovative fly fishing products for the wading angler that we’ve seen in a long time; Fishpond’s Quikshot Rod Holder. We think its a game changer for our style of fishing on South Andros, so today we felt it was our duty to tell you why.
We tend to do a lot of wading for bonefish on South Andros. In fact, one of the most alluring attributes of our fishery is that the majority of the time, bonefish can be targeted successfully from both a skiff and/or on foot depending on the angler’s preference. That being said, we find most anglers prefer to fish on foot as much as possible.
Fishing on foot does have its disadvantages, however, not the least of which is the inability to carry multiple rods. This typically forces the angler to choose which species he/she will target the moment they leave the boat (which is most often bonefish in our neck of the woods), leaving them unprepared or undergunned for the possible encounter of other species (barracuda, sharks, permit, tarpon, etc.). Fishpond’s Quikshot Rod Holder solves this problem completely.
