Fly Fishing the Flats of the Farquhar Atoll 2015
Magnus Jepson / April 25, 2015
The Farquhar Atoll is the most southerly atoll in the Seychelles chain of islands lying just over 430 miles to the southwest of the main island Mahe. This remote atoll has a total area, including the large lagoon, of 106 miles which is 11 miles north to south and 5 miles east to west.
If an “extreme” saltwater fly fishing trip intrigues you – the Farquhar Atoll, part of Seychelles, awaits you
Our editor, Capt. Andrew Derr, hosted a trip to Astove, in the Seychelles, which is also and incredible fishery with the same lineup of animals. Big aggressive bonefish (Albula vulpes), giant trevally (Caranx ignobilis), milk fish (Chanos chanos), triggerfish (Canthidermis maculata), barracuda and more. All in acres and acres of pristine flats.
Season: October – April
