Great Bahamas bonefishing action in a new trailer from World Angling!

From World Angling:

Fly Fishing for Bonefish in the Bahamas is a way of life. The sport and the guides that have made it a big business for the Bahamas tourism are revered members of their community. Yet despite their prominence, the guides and the future of guiding in the Bahamas face an uncertain future. With new regulations on the horizon and few young men willing to take up the profession, the industry is changing. Will Benson set out to document these changes with film makers Andrew O’neil and Dan Decibel. Ghost Stories follows a new Bonefish Tarpon Trust research project designed to document the history and traditions of bonefishing in the Bahamas and the phenomenon know as ‘Shifting baseline perspective.’

More on this destination:

The Bahamas are a series of islands and cays located just off the southeast coast of Florida and north of Cuba. For U.S. anglers, the Bahamas are an easily accessible saltwater fly fishing destination with some of the best bonefishing in the world.

While anglers have access to barracuda, tarpon, permit, and deep water species, the bonefish are the greatest draw for most anglers. Found in good numbers and also double-digit weights, these bonefish can be pursued year-round, and there are even opportunities for do-it-yourself anglers who want to walk the flats alone.

Of the specific spots within the Bahamas, Grand Bahama, Andros Island, Joulters, Abaco, Long Island, Crooked Island, and Deep Water Cay are among the most targeted spots, and there are plenty of other locations for anglers to access as well.
