We have been working with the Leadon family and AIBC since 1999, when Lefty Kreh suggested the spot to Brian Flechsig as "The Best".  Not going to change....we won't go anywhere else. We are always greeted with "Welcome Home", and it feels that way. Truly some of the finest bonefishing on planet Earth!

Andros Island- the Ultimate Bahamas Fishing Experience

Andros Island has developed a reputation as offering the best bonefishing on the planet. Andros Island Bonefish Club is conveniently located in Cargill Creek, Andros Town, Bahamas. Minutes from the famous "Westside" also known as the "Land of the Giants." The location of this club is part of what makes it so special.

Located approximately 150 miles southeast of Miami, Andros Island is the largest island in the Bahamas chain, yet it remains the least populated. All of The Bahamas Out Islands boast abundant natural attractions, but Andros — the largest yet most sparsely developed of all The Bahamas—is the king when it comes to superlative natural experiences. It’s a great place for a laid-back beach getaway, wedding or honeymoon, but for ecotravelers, kayakers, bird watchers, hikers, snorkelers, divers and fishermen, the big island of The Bahamas is the ideal vacation destination.

When it comes to saltwater angling, you are only as good as your guide! With over 50 years of experience, the team at Andros Island Bonefish Club is first rate. Owner and head guide, Captain Rupert Leadon, had long been considered the foremost expert on fishing the vast flats and waterways of Andros Island. That tradition is carried on today through his son Shawn Leadon and the staff of guides at the club.

He loves hosting and guiding and has passed his enthusiasm and commitment to service on to the rest of his staff. Shawn personally leads and trains his competent staff of native guides, most of them family and have all been guiding since their teenage years. As proficient anglers themselves they are highly capable of putting you on fish as well as helping you to perfect your saltwater angling technique.

They work as a team sincerely caring about the success of each angler. You will love these guys! It is a team effort. Guides, office staff, kitchen staff, bartenders, housekeepers, landscapers and maintenance staff all work together to make each visitor’s stay with us a memorable one.

The Andros Island Bonefish Club

The club was started over thirty years ago by Captain Rupert Leadon along with the help of Lefty Kreh, Billy Pate, Mark Sosin and other greats. They recognized the need for a premier bonefishing destination and AIBC became the perfect example. Captain Rupert developed the reputation as being one of the best bonefish guides in the region and the club quickly became a legendary hotspot. Although Captain Rupert is no longer with us, his family continues the tradition today!

The Andros Island Bonefish Club is now recognized as one of the premier bonefishing lodges in existence today. AIBC takes you away from the distractions of everyday life and places you within a fly cast of some of the best fishing in the world. The lodge stretches over a quarter of a mile and outside every room there is a great view of the ocean. All twenty-nine rooms are clean, comfortable and air conditioned.

Each comes with a private bath, a personal refrigerator and a ceiling fan. The rooms are generously sized for all of your tackle and belongings. We now have single rooms, double rooms, and even two triple rooms available to better accommodate your needs. Daily housekeeping and laundry service are provided. In May of 2003 Captain Rupert Leadon announced the acquisition and merger with AIBC’s neighbor, Creekside Lodge (formerly Cargill Creek Lodge). With this addition AIBC can now offer great new amenities. As our guest, you will enjoy the freshwater swimming pool with surrounding patio. Offering satellite television in addition to a full service bar, the indoor lounge adjoins the dining room and is a comfortable place to relax.

The bonefishing mecca of Andros Island and the superb hospitality at AIBC come together in a tropical paradise. A place where you can fish the seemingly endless flats, relax in a shaded hammock and absorb the beauty that surrounds you at the Andros Island Bonefish Club.

Legendary bonefishing in Cargill Creek

Andros Island and the Bahamas opens the possibility to fly fish for hungry bonefish across beautiful blue sand flats. You will experience the bonefishing adventure of a lifetime with the Andros Island Bonefish Club. Beyond bonefish there are tarpon, snappers, jacks and barracuda on the flats.

Andros has a variety of close-to-shore and on-shore ecosystems that may be unique on Earth: tidal inland and ocean blue holes, shallow sand and mud flats, tidal estuaries, mangrove swamps, the pelagic ecozone of the 6000-foot drop-off only a mile from shore, the world's third-largest barrier reef, and huge freshwater aquifers. The marine biosphere is fed by both the teeming life of the mangrove marshes and estuaries on the mainland, and the upwelling of cool water from the Tongue of the Ocean, resulting in an unparalleled variety of sea life.

Our hosted trip to the Andros Island Bonefish Club in The Bahamas will offer you full access to the most remote areas of the Bahamas, floating on pristine sand flats and fishing for some of the most beautiful fish in the tropics.
