Hurricane Irma at Casuarina Point, Abaco
Thank you to our many friends who inquired about our safety and our houses! Abaco was spared the hurricane force of Matthew, and the tropical storm winds did minimal damage. Here are some pictures that show just how lucky we were! We are THANKFUL!
The weather has been less than perfect during our stay at Abaco Palms on Abaco Island in the Bahamas but when the wind lays down enough to get out and do some fishing we have had some very nice days. I have had a chance to give the new Winston BIII Plus Saltwater Rod a work out and it’s been fantastic. I love the metal reel seat, ultra slick guides and fast action with “Winston feel”. This is one of the best saltwater specific rods available today without a doubt. The new Airflo Bonefish/Redfish “Super Dri” line has been solid as well. It floats considerably better than the Airflo Ridge Bonefish/Redfish. This entry was posted in Fly Fishing Gear Review, Fly Fishing Travel.
During our recent visit to Casuarina Point (September/early October 2015) Abaco Parrots were in our neighborhood everyday. We would hear them squawking loudly as they flew from tree to tree at feeding time – early mornings & late afternoons. We had just planted 3 new, tall Christmas Tree Palms on the street side of Kokomo, and they LOVED feeding on the berries!
It offered me a great position on the porch to watch them and take pictures and these three videos.
