Flats          bobwithclient          BobinBonaire

The Fly Rod Shop is reopening our winter guided trips to the warm waters of Bonaire, in the Virgin Islands.  The shop’s owner Bob Shannon guided in Bonaire for many years.  With our ever expanding destination travel, it was obvious we needed to return to the Caribbean.  Stalk the flats with our guides and sight fish for Bonefish, Tarpon, And Permit.  Get away with us and enjoy the warm water, hot sun, and  embrace the adrenaline rush as your reel screams and rod bends. Even if you are not from the snowy north,  join us for some time this winter and get away. Relax in the Caribbean air as you wade across a sandy flat in pursuit of the elusive, challenging yet extremely rewarding Bonefish.
