Soul Fly Lodge, Berry Islands, Bahamas
November 13-18, 2021
The Saltwater Edge is excited to be among the first guests at the new Soul Fly Lodge located on Great Harbour Cay in the Berry Islands.
This is a virtually untapped, high quality fishery with a reputation for big bonefish. This chain of over one hundred islands is loaded with quality habitat for bonefish, permit, triggerfish, mutton snapper, barracuda, and more. This trip will be hosted by Saltwater Edge owner Peter Jenkins.

The Soul Fly Lodge
Soul Fly Lodge and Carieearl Roost Restaurant
There are no other lodges in the Berry Islands save the world class offshore destination of Chub Cay at the extreme southern end. Yet the Berry Islands are easy to access. With the summer of 2021 the Bahamian government opened a brand new airport that serves as an official port of entry to the Bahamas and accommodates daily flights from Nassau and direct flights from Florida.
Soul Fly Lodge has four beautiful guest rooms with ensuite private bathrooms. Each room has super comfy beds and all the amenities you’ll need for a relaxing stay. Allowing you to rest easy and play hard.
Carriearl Roost is a full restaurant associated with Soul Fly Lodge and run by a top notch Bahamian Chef. It features a full bar and cocktail lounge with indoor and outdoor dining available.The
Carriearl opens to the public for dinner Thursday - Saturday and for brunch on Sunday.
Vast and Pristine Habitat...
With Lots of Bonefish...
The variety of bonefishing elements in the Berry Islands will quickly grab and tightly hold your attention. From miles of tailing bonefish on firm, wadable white sand flats, to lush turtle grass, ocean edges, thick mangroves, and backcountry creeks, the fishing around Great Harbour Cay does not disappoint. Bonefish here range from 2 to 10+ pounds with average fish around 3 to 4 pounds.
And Other Flats Species...
The permit fishing in the Berry Islands is special and a long kept secret. Permit can be found from Chub Cay to the south, all the way up to the north end of the chain. Our guides have been chasing permit for years and are prepared to help you intersect with arguably the toughest fish to fool with a fly.
Our guides, staff and lodge hosts are all experts in their craft with experience that is measured in decades. They don't get much more legendary than Percy Darville the Head Guide at Soul Fly Lodge.
