    Alphonse Island Fishing News – 100+ Bonefish on Day One!

    15 November 2018

    Fly Fishing Season 2018 | 03rd – 10th November 2018

    The perfect Seychelles sun shone down on a very springy atoll this week and the fast moving water brought with it plenty of opportunity. Sunday was our classic bonefish-bootcamp which led the team into landing well over 100 of these gorgeous specimens by the end of day one.

    Walter Stoeklein struck gold, landing a 54 cm permit and his winning streak continued into day two when he landed a 115 cm GT! Although the fast moving water made it even more tricky to tame the triggers, the team did well landing 4 in total with Vincent Ford landing a monster of 53 cm.

    Flint McNaughton and Vincent Ford both landed two GT’s of 75 cm each and Flint went on to join Peter Mathieson out on the bluewater boat where they landed 7 Wahoo in one morning.

    The team left in great spirits with an eagerness to return to chase that fish of a lifetime!
