Road to Redemption

Road to Redemption
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.
