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.

Another post from Chris Daughters of Oregon Fly Fishing Blog. Posted on November 3, 2012. Ripping West Northwest winds gave way to beautiful weather, all day in-coming tides and hungry Bonefish. Cool for the tropics but amazing for a couple of families from the West. Fishing, beaching, trick or treating has been a blast.
The following is a guest post from Chris Daughters over at Oregon Fly Fishing blog. He was one of our first year guests at Abaco Palms in 2006 and has been returning with his family almost every year. Two days in Orlando waiting out then Hurricane Sandy, literally hours on the phone with United Airlines, and a much lighter wallet thanks to Disney, we finally arrived to Abaco Island. Much of Abaco was spared significant damage including our location at Abaco Palms, located in the settlement of Casuarina Point. We have heard that both the Northern tip and Southern tip of Abaco near Sandy point experienced considerable flooding and are still recovering. Many of the Bonefish flats we typically fish are still muddy. The West wind tailing off the storm from the mainland U.S is still blowing and fishing conditions are less than ideal. We have found a few fish around, and conditions appear to be improving by the day. Despite delays and a bit of wind, 75 degrees isn’t to bad. More on site reports to come…
