Big Charlie and Fatiha's Fishing Lodge
Locally or Family-Owned Business Notes
Big Charlie Neymour comes from generations of some of the best bonefish guides on the planet. Simply put, bonefishing is in Charlie's blood. Specializing in trophy bonefish on the fly, Charlie is most at home on the poling platform of his Maverick flats skiff. His gentle instruction and never-ending sense of humour make him one of the best fishing partners you'll ever spend the day with.
Charlie and Fatiha have been in the fishing hospitality business for over a decade. Charlie is one of the premiere Bahamian fishing guides, carrying on a family tradition of guiding that has roots generations deep.
Formerly located at Nottage's Cottages, Charlie and Fatiha decided to design and build a lodge around the needs of both their clients and the community. This new facility, located on Cargill Creek, is a perfect home-away-from home for anglers who come from around the world to hunt the prized trophy bonefish of Andros' North Bight. Fatiha, Charlie and their son Adam make you feel like one of the family, whether it's your first visit or your one of the many regulars who make the annual pilgrimage to have the pleasure of a sharing a skiff with Big Charlie Neymour.
