Bonefish Destinations Editor's Notebook

Road to Redemption

by Ross Purnell, Editor   |  June 12th, 2018 0
Rankin Jackson could have been killed or consumed by the “push” of the drug trade in Honduras but instead he became a fly-fishing guide and discovered a spit of sand known as Cayes Cajones.
Ten years ago, Fly Fish Guanaja owner Steve Brown hired Rankin as a security guard, but he soon became one of the country’s top permit guides.
The place Rankin calls “the keys to the east” is 160 miles from Gaunaja, and has historically been a haven for drug runners, pirates and other illicit activities. It also just so happens to be home to one of the most untouched and unfished bonefish and permit habitats in the entire Caribbean.

Beyond the Horizon was featured in the world-wide distribution of the Fly Fishing Film Tour (F3T), won the ‘Creative Excellence’ award as an official selection in the 5points Film Festival in Carbondale, CO, and finally finished up its festival circuit as an official selection in the Telluride Mountainfilm Festival.
