Fly fishing

An intriguing method of ocean fishing unfolds in shallow, level regions known as flats.

These snow-white sandy expanses with solid substrates provide an inviting stage for wading fishing, boasting an abundance of sizeable species like Bonefish, Albula Vulpes, Milkfish (Chanos chanos), Triggerfish (Hydrocynus vittatus). Executing the technique of casting nearly weightless artificial flies demands a particular skill set, earning this approach the distinction of being considered "aerobatics" within the angling community. Notably, all equipment—rod, reel, line, and artificial fly—ought to be purpose-built for marine fishing, ensuring a safety margin. For Bonefish, a Class 9 rod paired with shrimp flies is recommended, while the Giant Caranx (Caranx Ignobilis) calls for a Class 12 rod, complemented by classic caranx imitating fry flies.

Fly fishing in the Seychelles presents an equally thrilling experience in the open ocean, close to atolls, islands, and reefs. Within these waters teem a remarkable array of fish, spanning tuna, trevally, barracuda, sailfish, wahoo, coryphaen, and numerous bottom fish species. Amidst the pursuit of shallow water catches, anglers can seize the opportunity to acquire unique trophies in the expansive ocean expanse.
