About Stafford Creek Lodge

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 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.  All levels of angling experience are welcome.  The serious angler will be rewarded with the opportunities for Bonefish, Tarpon and Permit, while the first time angler will catch their first bonefish!  For the non-anglers we offer nature walks, birding, a visit to a blue hole, stand up paddle boarding in the creek, eco-tours, 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 “Taming 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).
