Default Andros Island guide

Can anyone recommend a guide on Andros Island? I've done the google search but would like some recommendations. I'll be staying in the Fresh Creek area.

Patterson Bowleg, Mangrove Cay Bonefish Guide Service. Most excellent guide and a very nice guy. He has other good guides working for him, too. I've used several.

Also, this is a GREAT fly for Andros, the SimRam. I have never had a bone refuse it.

It looks like Mangrove Cay isn't accessible from where I'll be staying on Andros. I believe where I'll be is referred to as North Andros.

Just a thought, but Patterson would be worth a shout to find out, and if he doesn't run up there, who would he recommend. He is a very responsible captain/guide.

You need Bradley. Great guy. I wrote an article about my first bonefish and fishing at Fresh Creek here:

I actually ended up going fishing with Bradley for two days. Great guide. Incredible eyes and always knew where to go to find fish. I'll definitely fish with him when I make it back to Andros.

Hi Steve,

I'll be staying in a bungalo, not a fishing lodge, on/near to Stafford Creek which is 26 miles north of Andros Town. Mostly, I will be primarily wading with 2 buddies, but I'm certain both will want to go with a guide for one day at least.

Is the guide, Bradley, whom you went with an independant or working with a lodge. And where does he fish out of, do you know?

Thanks,
Jim

I fished the Joulters Cays North Andros in Nov 2012 and 2013 with Philip Rolle. If you want to wade fish all day on white sand flats, this is the place. If the wind blows there's no where to hide so just accept the challenge and get fishing!

I think he works both as an independent and for a nearby lodge/resort. As best I know hes out of the Andros Town area.
