: Acklins Info ?

I am looking at a trip to Acklins Island this winter/ Spring; I would like to know what is the best time to go on such a trip with regard to the most stable weather.
Also some ideas on guides and places to stay, I do have some bone fishing experience but not a lot so I think a guide would be the way to go. I am trying to keep the cost reasonable, as I would be making the trip most likely alone.
Please if any one can help, point me in the right direction or give me any tips, suggestions etc, it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks :)

Trevor -

Why don't you join one of the Forum trips? You don't have to solo it, and we are v-e-r-y knowledgeable. We have great lodging and connections with Bob Berquist as well as Acklins guides. There are nice lodges nearby as well if that is in your budget.

In any case, just stay tuned and join one of the groups this winter.

Thank you for your reply, how do these trip work ? do they meet up in a certain place ? Where would I find more information about this ? as it sounds interesting.
I really don't want to solo it but I just don't know anyone in my part of the world that is in to this type of fishing .
Thanks :)

Trevor,

We collaborate on a date, meet in Nassau overnight and fly to Acklins in the AM. Fishing by mid-day. Fly back either mid-week or the following weekend.

Acklins is a beautiful place with friendly people and the fishing is pure and wild. Whether you decide to DIY with us, upgrade to a reasonable yet incredible experience with Bob, or go top dollar for the famous lodges on the island it will be a trip you will never forget and I am sure you will return regularly as we do.

It all makes me want to sit down at the bench and start knocking out flies; maybe you guys have some thoughts on this subject as well.
Thanks for a nice, friendly, helpful forum, great job guys!:)

Do you do any Atlantic Salmon fishing up your way? Sure would like to give that a shot at some point in the future. My wife's grandfather used to make annual trips to the Margaree River with family in tow. What a great tradtion.

I have done a fair bit in the past but not of late , But I do still tie salmon flies , well I did till I got this bonefishing bug, now it's mostly saltwater flies which are way more fun to tie I think.
The Margaree is still fishing quite well these days which is more than I can say for most of Nova Scotia rivers. It is indeed a gorgeous spot to fish and does hold some really nice fish, if your ever in this neck of the woods I'm sure we could sort something out.

Trevor, do a search with keyword Acklins for flies, I think I posted a bunch of pictures of the patterns I used before last year's trip.
