This is one of our bad-ass guides at Andros South. His name is Sparkles.
Al Conklin is part of Wayne Walts’ great group of anglers that visits Andros South a couple of times a year. Al got a nice bonefish on his last trip down, and was kind enough to send us this photo, along with a story.
“Sparkles spotted the fish on the edge of the mangroves and I happened to make the right cast – I’m being given a hard time about Sparkles being in the picture instead of me. The truth is that when I look at the picture, I see the person that made the catch possible and the stories he shared with me of knowing and fishing with Wayne for over 20 years. It makes a more lasting memory for me than holding the fish myself.”
Amen, Al! Nice fish.
