I have to say, I was pretty excited to see one of my favorite places, and favorite groups of people, featured on the recent production “Running Shallow” from Sage Fly Fishing as part of their Saltwater Season series. The Andros South Lodge is a special place for a multitude of reasons. First and foremost though has to be the guides. I cannot say enough about the folks who guide these waters on a daily basis. Needless to say, the guides in this video are legends of Bahamain bonefishing and have helped countless anglers, myself included, to become better fisherman in the long run. I owe alot to the guys that you see in this production and I am overjoyed to see someone highlighting their hard work in influencing the next generation of South Andros bonefishing guides. Without further Adieu… Bust out the popcorn and and check it out below!
Prince Emmanuel is a self-described “island boy.” He grew up on South Andros Island in the Bahamas, and though he’s spent some time “off-island,” he’s back and ready to make his life there. Working as a bonefish guide on the island is one of the surest paths to stability there—but the gig doesn’t come easy. You may very well find yourself on Prince’s skiff in a few years, casting at bonefish that he’s spotting for you. But in the meantime, he’s got his work cut out for him.
The team at Fishwest will be hosting another trip down to the Andros South Lodge in 2020. Hopefully by then Prince will be out on the water guiding full time. Stay tuned for details on this and all of our other destination travel trips by clicking HERE.
