The Seychelles has long been famed for its unspoiled sea’s and as the pearl of the Indian Ocean. Onboard our boats, we will guide you to some of the most amazing fly fishing grounds in the world. Turquoise flats are abound in this idyllic setting and the thrill of landing bonefish on the fly is a must for the zealous angler.
Our Boats, Angler’s Playground and Ce la Vie, is the perfect platform for launching your Fly Fishing holiday, with a team of dedicated fly fishing guides who’s familiarity with these fishing grounds goes unsurpassed. We are very pleased to introduce you to what is regarded by some as the finest salt-water fly-fishing in the world. All fly fishing trips are to the outer islands, those situated beyond the Seychelles plateau. The most common group for Fly fishing is the Amirantes group. The islands which compose this group are considered to be un-spoiled by man due mostly to their remoteness. The waters and flats surrounding the islands here are home to a huge variety of sea-life including abundant numbers of bonefish, the main species targeted. Fly fishing is mainly done wading on the “flats”, the shallow areas protected by the coral reefs or offshore for larger species. Several fish species can be caught: bonefish, pompano (Trachinotus blochii), trevally (blue fin, yellow spotted, golden and giant), snappers, queen fish and barracuda. Mahe and Praslin are interesting for first time saltwater fly fishermen or for those on a limited budget to fish the outer islands.
Seychelles is also synonymous with great sport fishing in pristine surrounds and the experienced crew aboard our vessels will ensure that you have the fishing experience of your life with state-of- the-art equipment, a horizon clear of other boats and a wide selection of fish just waiting to take the hook. Our deep sea fishing expeditions target yellow-fin and dog-tooth tuna, wahoo, dorado, barracuda, skipjack, rainbow runner, trevally, green jobfish, sailfish and the mighty marlin. The custom built fishing platform is invaluable for those inescable battles. From the Inner Islands with their imposing granite seascapes to the fish-rich waters of its remote atolls and sand cays, you can also try your hand at palangrotte, the local method of bottom-fishing where the prizes are red snapper, bream, bass which means together, some of the best tasting fish you will ever come across!
