Is the barefoot bandit a fly fisher?

Based on where he was captured and where he is from, the Barefoot Bandit could well be a fly fisher? In fact he could be most wanted fly fisher in history, but chances are he is just a thug. Had he brought his 8 wt and a few chartreuse and white Clouser minnows aboard his stolen plane that he allegedly crashed on Abaco island, he could have stalked some of the best bone yards in the world. After all, it is where the much vaunted Pirates of the Flats was filmed. Based the map above it seems like he could have fished in a lot of good places near his little red dots, but he was probably just stealing stuff and generally up to no good, in no shoes. Quote from the AP/NYT article is below.

Island police had been searching for the teen since he allegedly crash-landed the plane on Abaco, where he was blamed for at least seven burglaries. The search expanded to Eleuthera after police there recovered a 44-foot (13-meter) powerboat reported stolen from Abaco.
