Alphonse Island, The Seychelles

Alphonse Island is one of the last untouched bonefishing destinations with a chance of landing a trophy fish every cast.

It has only been quite recently that fishermen have discovered the incredible saltwater fly fishing on the flats of the Seychelles.

As a result of this relatively new discovery the flats have had very little fishing pressure and offer unparalleled opportunities for bonefish as well as numerous other species including giant trevally, milkfish, barracuda, palometa and myriad species besides.

The uniqueness that sets Alphonse apart from many other bonefish destinations is the ability to wade over 10,000 acres of hard white sand flats in search of these ghosts.

Bonefish are numerous on the flats of the Seychelles and are usually around 4lbs to 7lbs although larger fish are frequently hooked. Daily catches per rod of twenty or more bonefish are regular and the high average size is obviously a bonus. In addition the area has recently set records for giant trevally.

With excellent wadeable flats, you are able to stalk fish in the gin clear water and watch as they take your fly. The flats, which are hard white sand with minimal weed and coral growth, are interconnected with tiny channels, most being navigable by skiff.

Accommodation

The accommodation consists of a central complex containing a restaurant, bar, kitchen, lounge area, snooker/conference room, swimming pool and hard tennis court.

The accommodation is in beach bungalows or beach villas alongside the waters edge, each with sea views. They have all been beautifully renovated for October 2016.
