Ragged Island

It often strikes me as odd that within a few hundred miles of the overstuffed urban coastline of southeast Florida lie many islands that exist much as they did 50 or 100 years ago, though their residents now sport $8000 watches. Ragged Island in the Bahamas is the perfect example, where more than one enterprise has tried and failed to set roots. “Most recently, the Ragged Island Bone Fishing Club, a U.S.-based company which brought with it the occasional group of adventure-seeking fly fishermen, and, more importantly, their money, US dollars, has pulled out of Ragged completely and is reorganizing at the larger, more accessible Great Exuma Island to the north.” Brian Blanco in the Bradenton (Florida) Herald.
