ONE OF THE MOST UNIQUE & DIVERSE SALT WATER FISHING EXPERIENCES IN THE WORLD
BLUEWATER FLY FISHING
If you have never fought a sailfish, wahoo or yellowfin tuna, to name a few, on the fly, you are at the right place! The deep blue depths provide a prolific feeding ground for various fish species as the constant flow of rich currents well-up against the drop offs, ledges and ridges of the Amirantes. Anglers can start fishing for sailfish a few minutes away from Alphonse as the drop off is two miles from the yacht mooring.
The pelagics are often lured to the boat by trawling a spread of teasers. Once they are within casting range, the hook-less teasers are removed and the angler casts a fly. The reef species can be targeted by dredging with a heavy sink tip fly line and a Mega Clouser. There is also the option of targeting both pelagic and reef species that congregate around the shoals of baitfish, such as fusiliers and scads.
FLY FISHING ONSHORE
Catching a permit on fly is an experience that every saltwater fly angler aspires to achieve. The broken coral and turtle grass flats surrounding Poivre, Remire and African Banks are the perfect habitat for these graceful feeders. Poivre is known as the atoll with the most prolific populations of indo-pacific permit in the Seychelles.
On certain tides, there are also good numbers of bonefish in the four to eight pound range, which feed on the edge of the atoll. Poivre is purely a wading destination and anglers get to stalk these finicky feeders on foot as they hypnotize anglers with the waving of their sickle tails.
The Amirantes has some of the greatest offshore angling that the Seychelles waters has to offer, and the beauty is that all the spots are easily accessible by A’mani. The offshore structure is ideal, with a mixture of rings of sunken coral atolls, sheer drop offs, ridges and ledges, all of which are teeming with game fish.
Anglers enjoy exploring the edges of the famous “Ledge”, the “Amirantes Trench”, “Sand Cay Banks” as well as the other rims and coral reef platforms, while targeting the diversity of species both pelagic and reef that can be caught.
Fish like sailfish, wahoo, dogtooth tuna, yellowfin tuna, dorado, giant trevally, bluefin trevally, jobfish, tropical amberjack and a large variety of snapper, wrasse and grouper can be caught on any given day.
