(but it may cheer it up a bit. Not that that I’m suggesting it needs it, of course)

Hi. How are you? Thanks for visiting. Do stay a while and have a rummage around. The dropdown menus under this WELCOME heading will tell you what it’s all about and how to make contact etc. Elsewhere you will find a great deal of Abaco wildlife and natural history, and when you want a change head over to RANDOM for drinks, to sample some recipes, and maybe investigate maps, art, shipwrecks, shark attacks and hurricanes. 

And if you’ve enjoyed your stay, do come again. You can even subscribe and get new posts arriving in your inbox with zero effort on your part – click the button near the top of the right sidebar.

Rolling Harbour 2012

OCT 2019 I started this blog quite soon after the opening of the Delphi Club bonefishing lodge at Rolling Harbour, of which we were founder members. I started from scratch as a blogger and – let’s be honest here – in complete ignorance of what I was writing about. To begin with I winged it, until I became (a) more focussed and (b) more canny about research and the use of information gleaned (c) upgraded from a tiny snapshot camera to something slightly more sophisticated. Gradually the scope, range, and image quality increased until the enterprise became the sprawling monster you are looking at now. The advantage is that probably there will now be at least one section – hopefully more – that you want to take a look at. If so, it’s all been worth it.

    • That’s a most kind comment! I’m so pleased. We obviously have a bit in common – fishing at Syon, for a start (though I haven’t been for a while). I wonder if Andy is still i/c there? And have you ever tied a bonefish fly? All the best, RH


      • Definitely! Andy is still there, and Julian… I will see at least one of them tomorrow. Regarding bonefish flies, please search “JLM Special” on my “metiefly”blog at itieflies(dot)com… I also tied a mean crab pattern for permit if you search for blog post “New horizons – my first crab pattern”… Enjoy! – metiefly


  1. Bask! Bask! This, surely, is an Apian Oscar. A Bombus Booker. So many rigorous criteria generously relaxed and deftly side-stepped… May I adopt your first phrase and return it, though I haven’t yet instituted an award to accompany it (“The Parrots”?)? I’ve hugely enjoyed the everyday challenges of your bees, with storylines every bit as compelling as “…just a bit higher, Nigel… the barn’s on fire… hide, Linda’s coming up the path…”
    I’m really chuffed, thanks so much. Now back to that basking… Best from RH
