Fly Fishing The Seychelles

The Seychelles, with its 115 islands, deserted atolls and warm Indian Ocean waters, is renowned for being home to some of the world’s richest fish populations.

Fly Fishing

The best saltwater fly fishing in the world

The hard white sand flats, crystal clear waters, diverse fish species and ideal weather make the Outer Atolls of the Seychelles the best flats fishing destination in the world. You’ll be amazed by its waters teeming with aggressive predatory fish, that include giant trevally, bonefish, triggerfish, permit, barracuda, bluefin trevally, snapper, grouper and algae eaters like the turbo-charged milkfish. If you venture into the blue water you can put your skills to further test by targeting the healthy populations of sailfish, wahoo, yellowfin tuna, dogtooth tuna, dorado, and even marlin.

Challenges like these make Seychelles the best fishing destination for experienced fishermen and beginners alike.
