On Andros, land and water intertwine. Mangrove cays, endless miles of sandy flats, and winding creeks and channels traverse the largest island in The Bahamas. Tarpon, permit, and bonefish swim these waters. They’re easy to miss, and fishing for them requires a trained eye.

Bahamians like Glaister and Mary have spent a lifetime on the water, learning the flow of the tides, the movement of the wildlife, and the deep connection between the two.

Out on the flats, your guide knows just what to look for. the right waters — low tide spots with soft, steady ripples along the surface. And the tell-tale movement of a fish — a silver glimmer or a bit of kicked up sand. follow your guide's direction — “fish at 2 o’clock, 15 yards”— and the odds of a catch are in your favour.

And if you come up empty, it’s still a day spent on the water.
