Saltwater Edge Podcast - The Flats Phantom - Travis Sands



Travis was introduced to guiding at a very young age by his Dad Harley, who is a veteran guide in South Andros, Bahamas. The story goes Travis would run back to the house when he saw his dad's skiff head out for the day and "borrow" his fly rod. The gig was up when Harley pointed out "those are not my wind knots!"

Since then, Travis has earned a reputation as one of the top flats guides around. He is based at Soul Fly Lodge in the Berry Islands, Bahamas. He is an enthusiastic student that has observed and researched the behaviors and habits of the species that live on the flats he calls home.

He has a classic "Bonefish Speech" that any flats fisherman would be wise to listen to.

He has a healthy passion/ obsession with permit that never seems to fade. He has become a tremendous flycaster and a talented teacher. Impressively quick to diagnose the needed tweak in the client's mechanics. A day on the water with Travis will create a memory for sure!
