I'll do my best to fumigate it for his boarding pleasure.

I'm going to Andros in a week -- mostly bonefish, probably
barracuda,
but maybe some offshore,too, for Dorado and Tuna. Been tying lots of
flies -- Gotcha/Crazy Charlie hybrids, Simrans, Ververka Mantis
Shrimp, Scampis, Marabou Shrimp, etc. Big and light is the theme.


Willi, Danl, and Jeff are there now, and I'll see them very briefly
at
the airport when I arrive in Congo Town. Maybe they'll have some
stories and some hot flies for me.


TR to follow.


Get well, Wolfgang.


have a great trip, rw--tell the boys wayno says howdy.


And Howdy backatcha, Counselor.



yfitons
wayno


Sure hope the guide does not let Jeff drive the boat - last time we
were aground for seven hours !!!! sounds like fun ! __Joe Mc


Jeff and Danl and Willi are on a DIY trip, I believe. They rented a
place in
Congo Town. (Strange name. I wonder about the history. The Bahamas has
had
a sometimes bitter and racially tinged relationship with their
colonial past.)

I wish them the best luck, but from what I've heard DIY is
problematical at best.

We are having a blast. Have a nice house right on our own private beach.
Easy to catch fish right in the "front yard". We've been fishing mostly in
the South Bight for bones. Guess what!!!!! Willi has caught the most and
biggest fish!!! What a surprise.

Have also done some fishing in other, walk-in locales. a little more
difficult than riding in a boat. We are concentrating more on these areas
this week.

DIY here takes more planning than staying at the lodges (duh!), but you
have
your own place and your own car and your own guides and can go wherever
you
want to go. And it turns out to be a lot less expensive than the "lodges".
DIY is a no-brainer if you have a little gumption. Not to say that going
the lodge route is a bad idea, but we have met a couple of un-satisfied
lodge fishermen, along with several who have given rave reviews.

RW, you're going to have a great time down here! Travel safe!
When does your flight arrive in Congo Town?

I'm sure Jeff and Willi will chime in later.

Y'all take care,
Danl


Glad to hear you're doing well. Any offshore action?

No, we haven't attempted any.

I believe that I arrive in Congo Town on the plane you're leaving on.

Damn, that's early! On no fumigation is necessary.

Did any of my flies work out for you?


Yes they did! And thanks for sharing them.

Travel safe, Steve.

See you on Saturday.


Danl

Saw Willi, Danl, and Jeff for about one minute at the Congo Town
airport. They looked happy. Already I've found out that the reputation
of that trio has gotten around the island.

The airplane fumigation was a fail, despite my Wendy's breakfast in
Nassau airport. Sorry, Walt.

Serious fishing tomorrow. Rigged for bones, cudas, sharks.

One is forced to suspect that there are perhaps places in the world
where the arrival of actual persons is still a noteworthy occasion.

Where were you?

One hesitates to speculate on the nature of the obstruction.....the
location speaks for itself.

Sorry, Walt.


Liar.

cuda & shark... toothy critters..... a blood steaming frenzy..., an
epiphany of this love we call fly fishing. some will say it's a
psuedo...... woefully. they lack THE experience to effectively enter
the discourse, the poor unknowing *******s.

bonefish are ok too. see if your guide can put ya on some crevalle
later on, they are fun.

and remenber.... there are some poor knowing (couch potatoes) *******s
that are wholly dependent on descriptive reporting....
