A Unique Bahamas Fishing Vacation at Small Hope

Bahamas Fishing - Bahamas Fly Fishing - Bonefishing in the Bahamas - Fishing Trip on Andros Island Bahamas - Map of North Andros Bahamas

Andros Bahamas is laced with thousands of miles of inland waterways and fishing flats. North, Middle and South Bights cut right through the island, east to west, creating a natural access to even more flats on the west side of the island. These provide world-class conditions for fly fishermen in pursuit of bonefish and tarpon.

Andros Island, with its 140-mile long reef and its extensive inland flats offers serious challenges to spincasters and fly fishermen. Small Hope Bay Lodge has its own in-house guides and boats. We use three guides primarily, plus a team of the best independent guides to offer great Bahamas Bonefishing, Reef Fishing, and Deep Sea Fishing.

Bonefishing | Reef Fishing | Deep Sea Fishing | West Side Overnight


Bahamas Fly Fishing - Fishing Trip
We at Small Hope Bay Lodge believe it takes more than world-class conditions to have a world-class bahamas fishing experience.

Sure, we have bonefish! Great schools of them and thousands of miles of flats. Tarpon, too. Serious fly fishermen come here and try to keep it all to themselves. We have great reef fishing, Grouper school in December and January, mutton snapper run in the summer. Dolphin and tuna and more keep spincasters fed.

We also have great guides who have experience not just in fishing, but in catering to fishermen. They know the waters, and their boats are sound and properly equipped.

Then there's the food and drink. We believe in eating well-very well. We pack you a great lunch each day you go out to the flats. And greet you with a great dinner when you return.

And we offer you a great place to stay, Small Hope Bay Lodge of Fresh Creek.
