Blackfly Lodge Blackfly Lodge

Welcome to the Black Fly Lodge. We're located on the beautiful island of Abaco in the northern Bahamas, home to some of the largest and best bonefishing in the world. Stories about bonefishing in Abaco have been around for years, but that's nothing compared to the real life action you can find also casting to permit, tarpon, barracudas and mutton snappers on the crystal clear flats surrounding the island. Although flyfishing in Abaco is the most common way anglers catch bonefish, we still host many spin fisherman throughout the year. Bonefishing in the Bahamas has reached a near cult status among flyfisherman in recent years and Black Fly Lodge gives the serious fly angler another incredible destination to pursue their sport. We know you'll enjoy our private seaside lodge while we're building our permanent headquarters for Black Fly Lodge in the next cove over, in the new town of Schooner Bay. If you love flyfishing in the Bahamas, you'll love bonefishing in southern Abaco at the Black Fly Lodge.

Black Dolphin Inn Black Dolphin Inn Blackfly Logo

The Black Dolphin Inn Bed and Breakfast or what we like to call it, a boutique hotel, is the newest Blackfly affiliated destination property located in New Smyrna Beach, Florida. Officially the hotel is "A Blackfly Hideaway Destination" and it truly is... a former "diamond in the rough" built in the 1920's, lovingly restored by Brett and Scott Smith right on the intercoastal waterway. Whether you're flying out to the Bahamas on Airgate Aviation the next day or simply heading to Mosquito Lagoon for a little redfishing in the fantastic fishery along the Indian River, Black Dolphin Inn is a "must stay" as your fishing headquarters. You know that Blackfly doesn't award the name and Blackfly Logo to just anybody right......so you know it's going to be first class and loaded with excellent customer service and amenities to make your stay at Black Dolphin Inn a true Blackfly experience.

Fishing in the Mosquito Lagoon area is one of the best fly fishing experiences in Florida and we have top notch fly or spin guides ready to show you how good the fishing can be. If you've arrived early at the Black Dolphin Inn for a fishing trip to Blackfly Lodge in Abaco Bahamas the next day on a flight with our airlift partner Airgate Aviation, why not get in an extra half day of fishing in the afternoon. You might as well start your vacation early! If you're just in town to witness what the Central Florida coast has to offer we're sure you'll be as impressed as we were when you see the diverse fishery unfold in front of your skiff.

Give us a call at the Blackfly Outfitter store in Jacksonville Florida at 904 997 2220 to make your Black Dolphin Inn reservations or to reserve one of our professional fly fishing guides to fish the Mosquito Lagoon, Indian River or the No Motor Zone.
