Above: Eleven Mothership near Andros, Bahamas

Those in search of Andros bonefish can stay in places that range from upscale resorts, likeKamalame Cayand Tiamo, to simpler fishing lodges such as the famous Mangrove Cay Club. The ultimate way to fly-fish for Bahamian saltwater species, however, is aboard theEleven Mothership, a 74-foot Hatteras yacht, part of the Colorado-based Eleven Experience group, which ownsBahama Houseon Harbour Island.

Unexploited and unpolluted, the waters are teeming with marine life.
