This January, Bair’s Lodge is teaming with The Bonefish & Tarpon Trust for 4 days of catching, tagging, and releasing a goal of 1,000 bonefish in the name of good fun and critical saltwater science. Target big winter bones alongside Dr. Aaron Adams, who will be on hand to answer all your questions about this fascinating flats species-from habits to habitats… and much more. In addition to great fishing with good friends, half of angler fees generated from this special trip will be donated to the BTT, and earmarked for future fisheries studies in the Bahamas.
Dr. Aaron Adams is the Director of Bonefish & Tarpon Trust and a Research Associate Professor at Florida Institute of Technology. He has lived, worked, and fished on both coasts of the US, as well as throughout the Caribbean, where he has been conducting fish research for more than 25 years. His scientific focus has been on conducting applied research with conservation implications (from coral reef to recreational species), with particular interest in fish habitat ecology. Aaron has done it all in saltwater fly fishing -from guiding to science research. He penned all of the biology components of Chico Fernandez’ famous book Bone Fishing as well as writing several books of his own: Fisherman’s Coast, Saltwater Prey, and The Orvis Guide to Fly Fishing for Coastal Gamefish. Aaron is also the inventor of several fly patterns we use in South Andros to catch monster bones! He’s a great host and a wealth of information, he will be doing slideshows on bonefish conservation and what we have learned in these tagging programs as well as on what bonefish eat.
