Farquhar 2011 Update

We’ve just received our first report back from the guides on Farquhar Atoll in the Seychelles, where they have just completed their 3rd week, giving them the chance to explore the atoll with the use of 4 new skiffs. According to the guides the fishing was simply outstanding. All the species were around in good numbers, with the Triggerfish and Bumphead fishing in particular far exceeding anyone’s wildest imagination….in their opinion, the numbers of Triggerfish are the finest they’ve ever encountered!

This is an extract from the guides’ weekly blog entry: “With the use of our versatile skiffs we entered a maze of bommie fields and soon we’d found parts of the atoll that few had explored, and judging by the quality of the fishing….. few had ever fished. Large Triggerfish seemingly littered the flats, schools of ‘Bumpies’ where feeding over the marl and sand flats, GT’s cruised the edges and some truly enormous ‘Milkies’ fed hungrily off the surface. Christmas had certainly come early for Team FlyCastaway. Not only was the flats fishing superb but the afternoon bluewater sessions where equally impressive. Tails of fly caught Wahoo, Bonito being upgraded into massive Dogtooth Tuna and Sailfish leaping into the air, have made the start to our season a truly memorable one.”

Simply put, Farquhar Atoll is an ideal venue for anglers’ intent on targeting a multitude of flats and offshore species alike. Whether it’s tackling Giant Trevally, Triggerfish, Bumphead Parrotfish, Bonefish, Bluefin Trevally, Barracuda or Milkfish on the flats or taming the monsters of the deep such as Dogtooth & Yellowfin Tuna, Sailfish or Wahoo, Farquhar has them all!
