Seychelles >> Indian Ocean >> Astove Atoll
Fishing and Species
The fishing is a combo of wading and fishing out of a boat. Giant Trevally are the attraction for many, but the broad range of species and their accessibility are the real attraction of this remote location. Other species are Bonefish, Permit, Barracuda, Milkfish, Bluefin Trevally, Triggerfish, Yellowfin Tuna, Dogtooth Tuna, Wahoo, Sailfish and Marlin.

A stones throw away from Cosmoledo lies the small but ultimate saltwater flats destination called Astove Atoll. Its shallow lagoon with one small entrance that is surrounded by sheer drop-offs teeming with fish, makes it the best and wildest fly fishing destination. Not only does Astove have lots of big GT’s but also Bonefish, Permit, Barracuda, Milkfish, Bluefin Trevally, Triggerfish, Yellowfin Tuna, Dogtooth Tuna, Wahoo, Sailfish and Marlin. The daily drama of a pristine dynamic ecosystem play out in front of your eyes, a rare opportunity to gaze into a world, which has changed very little since it was discovered by anglers. The difficult anchorage due to a sheer wall that drops off to over a 1000 meters with in a few hundred meters from shore has meant that past visits have been limited. There is a 6 week season in October-November and an 8 week season February-April. The group will spend 7 nights in the lodge and have 6 and a half full days fly fishing and exploring this remote atoll. Teams will comprise of 2 anglers and 1 guide fishing either from a skiff or on foot depending on the chosen fishing area and tide. The accommodation is rustic but comfortable, comprising of 6 en-suite single occupancy bedrooms.
