Phillip Rolle’s North Andros Fly Fishing is an intimate operation, giving 4 – 6 anglers direct access to the famous bonefishing found on the Joulter Cays. The Joulters are a collection of around 50 small islands, spread out over a 125 mile sand bank off the North Shore of Andros Island. The 20 miles of extensive hard sand flats are a wade fisherman’s paradise. There are channels running though the flats that keep the bonefish on the flats during every tide and also attract permit. There is also convenient access to the west side of Andros (by trailing to Red Bays), which offers large bonefish, resident tarpon, and occasional permit.
The guides at North Andros Fly Fishing make it a special place to visit. Phillip and his guide staff are passionate about fly fishing; true professionals, operating high quality skiffs and engines, and are just as comfortable with seasoned anglers and first time bonefishers. Many clients come back saying that Phillip is one of the best guide they’ve fished with in the Bahamas.
North Andros Fly Fishing provides accommodations in two cottages. The larger cottage has 3 bedrooms, 2 private bathrooms, a living room with satellite TV, and a screened in porch. The smaller cottage is typically used when there are two separate groups booked at the same time, to give clients more privacy. Both cottages are basic, but clean, comfortable, air conditioned and perfect for serious anglers looking for great guides and exceptional fishing at an affordable price.
The standard daily schedule starts with a modified continental breakfast with fresh coffee served in your cottage. The guides will pick you up at your front door to head out the day of fishing (10 minute drive to the boat launch). Picnic lunches are packed on the boat. More than likely you’ll be hard pressed to find time to pause for lunch between wading or poling after bonefish in the 4 – 10 pound range. After fishing, the North Andros Chef will serve appetizers at the larger cottage, followed by dinner. Dinners are home style meals from a diverse menu. Please note that North Andros Fly Fishing doesn’t provide alcoholic beverages, but you are welcome to bring your own (recommended if you are particular about your liquor or wine) or the staff will be happy to take you to the local liquor store.
Like the rest of Andros, there isn’t much for non-anglers to do, but the cottage is a two-minute walk to a beautiful beach. There is good snorkeling and sunbathing at your fingertips. You can snorkel the ocean Blue Hole in Conch Sound or find a young person in Evans Town to walk you to the mysterious Evans Cave and Blue Hole (explored by Jacques Cousteau). Two bicycles are available for your use. Our taxi driver, Alan Russell, can be hired for half or full day tours of Andros Island. There are original straw baskets and wood carvings to purchase in Red Bays, the only settlement on the Wild West side of Andros. Red Bays is also the home of the sponging Industry. You can also visit other Blue Holes and Captain Morgans’s Cave. On a full day trip you can tour the Androsia Batik Factory. Rental cars are also available. Don’t forget they drive on the left side of the road!
