the perfect tropical hideaway
Experience fly fishing for bonefish, permit and saltwater species from The Delphi Club, Abaco, Bahamas. The Delphi Club is the ideal destination for fly fishermen and their wives. Excellent bonefishing and accommodation make this a perfect tropical hideaway.
An Excellent Bonefishing Experience
The Bahamas has long been synonymous with stunning white sand, aquamarine water, and is historically one of the areas in which bonefishing first became popular.
The fishing on Abaco is of top quality and far less crowded than on the better-known island of Andros. The famous Marls on the west side of the island offer over 200 square miles of first-class bonefishing flats which also give anglers an occasional shot at permit and tarpon in the summer.
On the east side the gorgeous sandy flats at Cherokee Sound provide more bonefishing options, including some gorgeous wading flats. Whether wading alone on the flats, paddling a kayak or poling gently through the mangroves in a guided skiff, fishermen will enjoy many opportunities to cast to these most powerful, but stealthy of fish. The Delphi Club’s guides are all experienced professionals and there will be few excuses for anglers not nailing a handful of bonefish from two or three pounds and up.
catch the sea breezes
Designed in the style of an 18th century colonial plantation house, with large wrap-around verandas, the 8-bedroom lodge stands on a small hill to catch the sea breezes and panoramic ocean views.
The club captures the style of a classical house party, where the characters change from time to time. Everyone generally eats together at one big table from a set menu. There are no bell hops or room service – it’s just a relaxed gathering of kindred spirits.
Quite apart from its beautiful sandy beach and turquoise seas, the club has a lovely infinity pool and a gazebo for massage and other therapies. There’s an eclectic library, a great wine cellar and a well-stocked honesty bar. Whether dozing in a hammock or quietly reading with a glass of chilled Meursault on one of the club’s large verandas, guests may relax thoroughly and enjoy one of the world’s most pleasant climates and beautiful seascapes.
“My seven days in the Delphi club were without question some of the most enjoyable, not just fly fishing for bonefish but also relaxing in the old colonial style building.The white sandy beach of Rolling Harbour is very accessible from the club,only 2 minutes walk. For novices to bonefishing,the excellent guides will make you an expert at both spotting and catching fish in no time at all. The warmth of welcome extended to us by Peter Mantle, the owner and Sandy,the club manager were second to none and as such I am already planning my next trip.” P.S. – Dublin
“The pool is very pleasantly situated and is a reasonable size – I enjoyed an early-morning swim each day. The food was excellent – a nice selection of menus and ingredients which suited the hot weather.The day-excursion from Marsh Harbour which a group of us took on the lagoon and some of the out-lying islands was delightful – the water was crystal clear and warm, so swimming and snorkeling was blissful. My overall feeling was that I was a welcome and cossetted guest in a lovely family home.” Mrs. C.J. – Luxemburg

Non-fishers will feel equally at home and fishing “widows” no longer need to stay behind while their husbands roam the world in search of piscatorial pleasures. The club has been designed with both fishers and non-fishers in mind.
