All Smith-Wells local guides have passed written & practical examination by the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism.
Your day on the water begins with the island's most experienced, friendly and professional fly fishermen waiting in your backyard.
Sam, Frank, and Jerry are Long Island natives, fourth and fifth-generation bonefishermen, and champions of four of the five Bahamas bonefishing tournaments.
CATCH & RELEASE POLICY
Out of respect for our fishery, we use only barbless hooks. This practice ensures the cleanest, fastest release of a healthy fish. By filing the barbs off their hooks or crimping them with pliers before they arrive, our clients spend more time fishing & leave more fish for others to catch.
