For smaller cudas that aren't too far away, I have had success tying on a pre-rigged dropper to the hook on my bone fish fly. Larger cudas can snap the light tippet and it can be clunky casting. ...

Spoff4,

Nassau security has been my problem point trying to carry flys on board, so shipping them to yourself in Nassau won't help get them from Nassau to Acklins. I've never had a problem...
