    Keith Rose-Innes

    Keith, Alphonse Fishing Company and Blue Safari Seychelles Co-Founder and Managing Director, has a management and guiding portfolio extends through 26 countries over more than 25 years. His years of exploring, promoting, and establishing the remote coral atolls of Seychelles firmly put them on the world fly fishing map.

    He was the first to fly fish and host trips to many of the now well-known Outer Atolls and developed techniques and flies for various flats fish species that were previously seen as “non-catchable”.  Today this passionate fly angler and conservationist puts the majority of his focus into protecting the ecosystems of the Outer Islands of the Seychelles through sustainable use and conservations. With his wealth of fly fishing knowledge and experience in the hospitality industry, he oversees all AFC destinations.
