Vaughn's Fly Box Picks:
Kamalame Resort is again a location with lots of varity. The offshore fishing is good and you should have some large baitfish patterns. There are also opportunities for Jacks, Snappers and Barracudas. Kamalame bonefishing guides suggest the following fly patterns: bright gold gotchas #2, #4; pink gotchas #4; pink puffs #4. There are several new patterns available for these bones and I would try a few is size 6 also. Notice the guides picked bright colors. Remember sink rates are everything in the Bahamas so have you flies with different weights of eyes for the different depths of the water. Permit are around but not a targeted species so a few crab patterns would be useful and the bones like them too.
Andros Island, located approximately 150 miles east of the Florida Keys, is a premier bonefish destination. This Bahamian Island, which is over 100 miles long and in places up to 40 miles wide, consists of vast areas of flats, creeks, cays, cuts, mangroves, and fertile fishing grounds. Kamalame Cay, situated on the northeastern part of the island, allows access by skiff to numerous flats that are relatively close to the resort’s dock, or alternately by trailering the boat to the Joulter’s Cays or to the West Side of Andros. When fishing at Kamalame there are numerous options from which to choose. You can start your day from the resort’s dock and fish the oceanside flats and inland creeks along the eastern shore of Andros, all the way to Majestic Point. These flats hold large and aggressive ocean bones that feed around the sandy and coral shorelines adjacent to the deeper water. The inland waters and lagoons are accessed by the creeks, and smaller schooling fish can be targeted along the mangroves.
