Fly Fishing the Seychelles

Fly Fishing in the Seychelles

Considered by many anglers to be the finest saltwater flats fly fishing in the world, the shallow waters of the Seychelles offer unbelievable wading and amazing fly fishing opportunities for an incredible number of different species. When you take into account the sheer diversity of fish species found in the Seychellois islands, the seclusion, the epic scenery and the overall action, these are saltwater fisheries that are truly unlike any other found on the planet. All of our Seychelles operations - both land-based lodges and live-aboard mothership operations - are operated and staffed by experienced and professional guides using the latest skiffs and most up-to-date equipment. Throughout these area waters you will find bonefish in extraordinary numbers, several different types of trevally, milkfish, triggerfish, bumphead parrotfish, permit and dozens of other reef and flats species. As for the incredible Giant Trevally action that is found throughout the islands, we can confidently say that there is nothing else that compares in the entire world of fly fishing.

Compared to the Caribbean or the Bahamas, this part of the world is by no means a quick and easy place to access. What you will find upon arrival, however, are incredibly pristine ecosystems that are basically untouched by any sort of development, traffic, or angling pressure. When fly fishing in the Seychelles, you may feel as if you are the first person to set foot on a particular flat. In this part of the world, that may in fact be the case! We are very excited to once gain be able to offer a number of remote, out-island operation that have re-opened as of 2015. These offerings include Astove Atoll, Cosmoledo and Providence.
