another 20 to the fishing flats. The fish around Grand Bahama are big. Seven
pounders are common. The water is usually deeper than your average flats so
bigger flies to get down faster are the ticket.
My wife learned the hard way that there are numerous sharks that patrol the
flats. Her first ever bonefish was cut in half 20 feet from the boat. The flats
