"THE BAHAMAS FLY-FISHING GUIDE is an instant bible. I can't imagine a more thorough guide for Bahamas-bound fly-fishing anglers. It tells you where to find the most fish, the biggest fish, and the best guides--it even spells out how to fish each spot on your own. And it's organized island-by-island, just the way you need it. I wish I'd had it twenty-five years ago!" -- Dick Brown, author of "Fly Fishing for Bonefish" and "Bonefish Fly Patterns."

"I've fished the Bahamas for most of my fishing lifetime and now wonder how I ever did it without the help of the Vletases' new guide book. Here's a book that will make it easy for fly fishers to reach right out and feel the pulse of a fabulous fishing destination." -- Flip Pallot, author of "Memories, Mangroves & Magic"

"A definitive text on the subject, with island-by-island descriptions of fishing locations complete with maps, guides, accommodations, other leisure activities, suggested tackle, and an excellent historical perspective...To embark on a fly-fishing trip without THE BAHAMAS FLY-FISHING GUIDE is to go naked!" -- R. P. Van Gytenbeek, editor in chief, "Fly Fishing is Salt Waters" magazine.
