The world is full of magic places and when one finds you it feels like home. We are fortunate to live and play in one of those sacred spaces called Blackfly Lodge.

Surrounded by some of the worlds best blue water and flats fishing, there is always the anticipation of what will happen next.  It would be hard to find a better team of guides and lodge staff that are more committed to your enjoyment and success and I am proud to be in that mix.

Flip Pallot told me one day, “The Blackfly is how it used to be, only better”.

We can’t wait to share the magic with you.

The adventure that is Blackfly begins with the the unforced rhythms of Island life and extends to the memories that will last a lifetime.  South Abaco is a world-class fishery where at any moment the fish of a lifetime could be coming into casting range. Our guide team is second to none, consummate professionals committed to your enjoyment and success. Our fleet of custom Eastcape Vantages are designed to give you the most comfortable day of fishing you have ever had on one of the best flats skiffs ever made.


Our core values are simple; have fun, provide our guest with great fishing/lodge experiences, and make all meals special events.

With fresh seafood at our doorstep true “Ocean to Table” dining is our specialty.  Combine these amazing ingredients with Big Mamas cooking love and something magical happens.  Even when the fishing or the weather don’t cooperate it’s the food at Blackfly that makes up for it.  We look forward to having you at the table.


Blackfly Lodge sits in the thin space of Abaco., 32 miles south west of Marsh Harbor  the island narrows down to a neck where half mile east we are in a 1000 ft of some of the best blue water fishing in the world and a half mile west endless  trophy flats fishing.
