The Relentless Pursuit of the Elusive Caribbean Bonefish

MEET THE CAPTAIN:

With over a dozen years of fly fishing the Caicos Flats, Captain Darin will prove that there is no substitute for Local Knowledge. Darin has helped the largest Turks and Caicos Islands bonefishing operations gain world recognition and his list of clients include the likes of the self proclaimed pirate, Jimmy Buffet. To Darin these fish are not as elusive as travel writers make them out to be, you just need to get to the right spot, the tidal flats of the Caicos bank is his backyard and either he knows where to find them, or his backyard is just good (for bone fishing that is).

THE BOAT:

For your Turks and Caicos Islands bonefishing experience, DB Tours bonefishing boat is the best choice. It's a modern 17' Action Craft with single 115hp Mercury outboard (you can tie your hat on), fully tricked out to include GPS, fish finder (not that we need it), poling platform, cushioned seats and all amenities you expect on a top notch flats/fly fishing boat.

HISTORY:

We are natives of an island where subsistence farming and fishing were the only sources of food for a very long time. The Turks and Caicos women cultivated the land reaping their crops and the fishermen hunted and netted the bonefish with gill nets by the hundreds in an effort to feed their families and the rest of the cure and solar dehydration.

Hashed bonefish, boiled potatoes or peas and grits were the order of the day in Turks and Caicos Islands.

As times changed diverse new industries developed, creating new jobs, and the focus was drawn away from the bonefish harvest. Today the Caicos Islands boast one of the largest bonefish populations in the Caribbean. However, now instead of wading the flats and smacking the water trying to scare large schools of bonefish into gill net traps, island fishermen zoom to the flats on state-of-the-art, custom built, fly fishing boats and taking along world class fly fishing and spin casting anglers seeking to hook one of our legendary bonefish.

 

Friendly professional assistance if you don't know how to cast. Your tackel or mine!
