Fly fishing on Andros is world renowned and there is no better place to experience the excitement of flats fishing than at Stafford Creek Lodge. Prescott Smith will be one of your guides. Prescott and our three other experienced guides will put you on the right flats at the right tide, giving you the best opportunity to sight and catch fish.
Stafford Creek Lodge can accommodate up to six anglers at one time. Some groups prefer to book the entire Lodge. Others mix with visiting anglers from around the world. Though we cater to serious anglers, occasionally a non-angling guest will join a fishing party. For them we offer nature walks, birding, a visit to a blue hole, and dolphin watching. We can also arrange a stroll on white sand beaches, snorkeling and diving, or a taxi tour of historic sites and artisans workshops on the island. Whatever your choice, you will experience a new dimension in lodging, a home away from home atmosphere, and a feeling that this Lodge belongs to you. We look forward to your visit to Stafford Creek Lodge.
The Fishing at Stafford Creek Lodge
Come with us and experience our fishing program at Stafford Creek Lodge, home of the "Against the Wind" casting technique by Capt Prescott Smith. Here at Stafford Creek Lodge we target the three main salt water fly fish: Bonefish, Tarpon and the illusive Permit. However it is not uncommon to experience Barracuda, and Snapper amongst your "catch and release" trophies of the day. Bonefish and Tarpon fishing is a year round endeavor, with the primary months for Permit being May though early November (subject to cold fronts).
We will take you to the wilderness flats of the Joulters Cays and North West coast, fishing from high performance and comfortable Maverick skiffs. You will also have the opportunity to stalk Bonefish, wading the most beautiful flats in the world.
Our fishing days start early, allowing valuable fishing time on the flats. We plan the day according to the tides, the weather and the fish, not by the clock. Our experienced guides will have you on the best flats casting to fish in no time. We leave each morning either from the dock here at the Lodge or will trailer our top of the line skiffs a short distance to the northern Joulters Cays in comfortable vehicles.
Deep Sea Option
In addition to world-renowned flats fishing, we are pleased to offer our clients the option of deep fishing for Dorado and other non-flats species. You will fish from our comfortable 26 foot ocean craft, fully equipped with state-of-the art Garmin navigation equipment and ship-to-shore communications. Anglers may use fly fishing techniques or use conventional tackle. The additional rate (see rate sheet) includes captain/guide, all conventional tackle, live bait and a full lunch (maximum of two anglers).
Stafford Creek Lodge can accommodate a maximum of six anglers at one time. The cottages are very spacious and can comfortably accommodate two anglers per cottage. The rooms are appointed with one of a kind Andros Pine handmade furnishings, 2 queen size beds with down feather pillows a spacious bathroom, air conditioning and ceiling fans, rod holders, wading boot drying racks. Each room has a mini refrigerator stocked with sodas, lemonade, and water. Each room also has a coffee maker and fresh coffee for your convenience. Every convenience has been considered, with a hairdryer, a basic first aid kit, boat towels, bath robes/wraps, and alarm clock/radio provided in each room. We also offer a complimentary laundry service, so our anglers may travel light.
Each cottage has a private deck overlooking the magnificent view of Stafford Creek. In the early mornings you can watch the dolphins swimming up the creek to feed, and relaxing evenings can include fishing from the Lodge's private dock, sharing fishing stories under the cabana, or simply relaxing in the beautifully torch lit scenic setting of the Lodge grounds.
The Lodge serves a hearty breakfast early each morning to get your day started right. Lunch on the boat includes sandwiches, fresh fruits, fresh lemonade, home made bread, and anything else you request, from lobster salad to ice tea, beers, Gatorade, or fresh home baked cookies all await you on the flats. On returning to the Lodge, our exceptional chef will provide tasty treats, from fresh conch fritters to welcome you home from the days fishing, to sampling the finest seafood dishes, caught fresh from local waters.
You will have access to email and the Internet in our office. We can also provide maps and information about this incredible island, its fishery and conservation.
The Lodge now has a fully stocked bar of the finest wines, and spirits, as well as Cuban Cigars. Therefore, if you have a particular drink of choice, please make a request when making reservations and all efforts will be made to have that item for you on arrival.
