Saltwater Fly Fishing School at Andros South

Andros South (Google Earth at: 24.00.22.08N and 77.31.38.80W) is located just north of Little Creek, where their boats are moored for quick and easy access to both Little and Deep Creek, the fabled Westside with its large ocean bones and all of the south-end cays, creeks and flats. Their location couldn’t be better. The southern tip of Andros Island, beyond Mars Bay, is a vast, uninhabited, trackless saltwater frontier, with little fishing pressure and few humans. These waters are home to giant schools of hungry, unsophisticated bones as well as trophy, double-digit singles – the trademark of Andros Island.

Lodging at Saltwater School

Andros South is a friendly, laid-back bonefishing lodge that concentrates on providing a fishing experience that is second to none. If you are looking for white linen tablecloths, you should look elsewhere.

If you're looking for a very comfortable place to spend the week fishing, relaxing and enjoying a remote, quiet island in the Bahamas, you've come to the right place.
The lodge is situated on a beautiful white sand beach, taking advantage of the intoxicating trade winds of the Bahamas. Take a relaxing swim each evening, or maybe a walk or a run. You may even want to wade in with your fly rod and hone your casting skills while gazing out at azure blue water. There are also hungry barracuda and the occasional large bonefish cruising along the white sand. If you find yourself in need of a longer beach to run on, you can head just north of the marina/public dock and find yourself on a white sand beach that stretches as far as you can see.

The rooms are clean, comfortable, and air-conditioned. Each has its own bathroom, which awaits you with a warm relaxing shower at the end of your fishing day. Did we mention each guest gets his own room? Yes, it is true! No listening to your "good buddy" snore all night. Each room has tile floors and is furnished with comfortable beds and modern dressers and nightstands.The dining room is welcoming and laid back. It is perfect to enjoy cocktails, great meals and conversation with friends, both new and old.

Andros is proud of their kitchen staff and rightly so. While specializing in seafood you'll sample many other great dishes too, like the lodge's famous jerk chicken and ribs. During your stay you will be treated to all the best, fresh seafood our bountiful waters have to offer. From fresh fish, to lobster and conch, you are guaranteed to enjoy it all.

You will enjoy a variety of dishes, with an emphasis on traditional Bahamian cooking. The main dish is always complimented with rich, flavorful side dishes and topped off with a variety of truly sinful desserts. You definitely won't go hungry here. Homemade key lime pie, anyone?

Located right on the beach is our tiki bar that we affectionately call 'The Slack Tide'. This is a favorite spot to enjoy the beach, the breeze and drinks and appetizers at the end of your fishing day.There is a capacity of ten anglers.

Getting to Saltwater School

Getting to the Bahamas from the States, especially from the East Coast, is relatively simple and painless.

One convenient and direct option is a private charter flight from Fort Lauderdale directly to the Congo Town Airport, where anglers can clear immigrations and customs, transfer to the lodge and often be fishing on the morning of arrival. Charter flights also make it possible to arrive
quickly and comfortably to the lodge in a single day from practically anywhere in the country. And charter costs for 4, 6, or 8 anglers actually are quite competitive when compared to commercial flights.

Andros South is a 20-minute drive from the airport in Congo Town on South Andros. There are several options for flying into Congo Town. The most popular one for reaching our island is Lynx Air International. Lynx Air flies nonstop flights multiple times per week between Fort Lauderdale and Congo Town. Lynx Air's mid-day Saturday flight matches up well with our weekly changeover. Lynx Air flies from the Fort Lauderdale International airport, allowing for easy connections with flights within the United States, and outbound guests clear US Customs in Fort Lauderdale, which is typically a smooth process. Tickets on Lynx Air can be booked online at www.lynxair.com, or via telephone at 888-596-9247.

As a third option, two flights each day arrive from nearby Nassau with Western Air. These flights depart Nassau at 7:00 am and 3:15 pm, and take 20 minutes. The flights return back to Nassau at 8:00 am and 4:00 pm respectively. Reservations can be made with Western Air at 242-377-2222.

Important Note:
Western Air accepts only cash for payment. When checking in with Western Air in Nassau, you will need $140 in cash, either US or Bahamian ($1 US = $1 Bahamian), to pay for your round-trip ticket.

Once you arrive in Congo Town, a representative of our facility will meet you at the airport for the short drive to our lodge.
