Hi, I am Captain Danny Newbold and my expertise in the bonefish guiding industry extends over some 30 years. I have been married for 26 years. My wife and I are blessed with four children and 2 granddaughters.
My parents were farmers who lived on BARC (Bahamas Agriculture Research Center). So naturally, I learned farming along with my 10 siblings. As a young boy, I often fish on the rocks with my uncle Erroll Braynen in Behring Point, Andros. My interest for the fishing was born there. When my sibling would travel to the city during the summer breaks, I would opt to stay with Uncle Erroll so I could go fishing.
In 1987 I fell love with Juliet Leadon-Newbold, the daughter of the late legendary Captain Rupert Leadon, founder of Andros Island Bonefish Club. Fly fishing was the family business, and as they say, the rest is history. With the help of my father-in-law and Dennis Leadon, I was determined to learn the family business and become an exceptional guide.
I operate a 16 ft dolphin boat with 70 HP engine. On the fishing flats there are no typical days. Every day is different, every guest is different, the wind blowing in different directions and that’s what keeps it exciting. The fishing day begins at 8:00 am and ends at 4:00 pm depending on the weather. Our pristine flats and tropical climate make for a memorable day with endless opportunities.
CAMPING ON THE WEST SIDE
Fishermen looking for more adventure can enjoy camping on the remote westside of the island. There lays the opportunity to enjoy more of nature, the magical stars and walk off the campsite directly on the fishing flats.
Andros Island is 104 mile long and 40 miles wide (2300 square miles). The island is diverse with its barrier reefs and the tongue of the ocean gives the island a great zoological diversity. A rich land ecosystem, hundreds of blue holes, and over 200 species of birds including our resident flamingo, our massive land crabs and the famous Chickchaine a mystical bird that is believed to be half human and half bird.
