The Disappearance of Stanley Bain

By Tim Romano & Kirk Deeter

-By Will Rice

"There was no evidence to show they’d been around. There were no boats,
no wreckage. There was nothing." - Henry Bain. Andros Island, Bahamas

Stanley_bain_boat_3On the morning of August 5, 1995, Stanley Bain stood in front of his
Cargill Creek Lodge and surveyed the small flyfishing empire that he’d
built. The resort sat near the North Bight on South Andros Island, The
Bahamas, concealed among lush tropical gardens and manicured lawns.
Three satellite cottages peppered the outskirts of his property, which
included an in-ground swimming pool and a Cessna 402 for his more
affluent clients who wished to arrive via private charter. And
surrounding it all were some of the most productive bonefishing waters
in the world.

Stanley was preparing for a two-week fishing trip to harvest
lobsters for the coming year’s clients. A recent hurricane had just
passed and he and his brother William were getting a late start on
opening season. But soon after fueling up the 36-foot Luhrs Sport
Fisherman and two Dolphin skiffs that would accompany them, Stanley,
William, and three lodge employees set out into the emerald waters
surrounding Andros. As they headed away from Cargill Creek, the group
passed Simon Bain, another of Stanley’s brothers, who was returning
with a client from the North Bight and Moxey Creek after a morning
chasing big bonefish. Simon ran his boat close in front of his older
brother’s cabin cruiser, and he can still remember his two brothers
laughing as he passed. It was the last time he would ever see them.
Stanley Bain and his crew of four disappeared that day forever.

drug deal gone bad, probably, don't doubt that possibility for a second. of course, nobody knows. but caribbean waterfront, no coast guard, private landing stips. all these fishing operations in the caribbean are perfect for drug running. hell, they can make way more money than catering to silly fly fishermen.
