Soul Fly Lodge – Berry Islands, Bahamas


November 10-16, 2023



Why Go on a UWOTF HOsted Trip?

These trips are so much more than a fishing adventure.  Women of different ages, professions, backgrounds and fishing abilities come together to experience a trip of a lifetime.  It’s a scary thing to step out of their comfort zone and join other women.  The energy, laughter, smiles and friendships are like no other.  We came as strangers and leave UNITED as fly sisters.

Permit Soul Fly Lodge

Education Opportunities

UWOTF is focusing on education with all of our hosted trips. We will offer each angler a link to video casting drills to prepare for fishing saltwater.  Each evening we’ll have nightly discussions about the day and what we can learn from everyone.  There is a casting platform on-site that provides easy access to some final double haul lessons before we hit the water. Be sure to check out the Soul Fly Lodge Prep Your Cast for the Flats  blog post.

Covid Policy

Safety is our biggest concern.  We will share the most current Covid travel requirements into the Bahamas. 

Hosted Trip Disclaimer

This is a Drama Free Trip. We will be getting up EARLY on our fishing days. Saltwater fishing can be difficult and it’s highly recommended to practice casting, both distance and accuracy, into the wind before the trip. There are several factors to a successful day of fishing. We cannot control the weather or fish behavior but we can control the amount of education and fun both UWOTF and Soul Fly Lodge provides.

United Women on the Fly trips are about education, the experience, socializing and having FUN; catching fish is the cherry on top. Each angler will have their own bed in a shared room (unless single occupancy) with AC and an en suite bathroom.

There will be one guide and skiff per two anglers every day.  Anglers will equally rotate standing on the platform when fishing from the boat.  Remember – all guides are not created equal and you may prefer one over another. We will rotate all of the guides and assign your guide each evening. We come to the Bahamas for the incredible fishing opportunities, you won’t regret this trip!!
