The heart of what we do is fly fishing the shallows and flats of Ascension Bay. We pioneered the concept of two guides per boat so that in addition to another skilled set of ‘eyes’ for sight fishing, it creates a private guide while you are out wading. We were also the very first people in the region to build poling platforms for our custom pangas.
Any fishing lodge is only as good as its guide staff. We are very proud of our guides and their knowledge and mastery of this intricate fishery. The ABBC guides have studied these waters for years and have learned well. Our fishing successes and repeat customers attest to the knowledge and professionalism of the ABBC guide staff. ABBC uses two guides per boat. One senior guide handles the poling and the other stands with the angler to point out the fish. Both guides are constantly probing the flats for fish so that our anglers actually have two experienced pairs of eyes in addition to there own.
We utilize 23′ custom fiberglass boats [pangas] that have plenty of rod storage and a clean front area with a very stable casting platform. While not glitzy, your impression of them will be elevated as you experience the simple functionality and productive results these crafts allow us. Boats are like custom tied flies, some are designed to hook fisherman, some just to hook fish.
