Seychelles: milkfish mania ...Chanos Chanos, the movie
By Charlie White
The first trailer of Chanos Chanos has hit our screens, as seen through the lens of Jako Lucas and Captain Jack Films...
Its a short glimpse into the world of milkfish and these hard fighting, algae eaters are for me, the ultimate Indian Ocean challenge. The presentation has to be both delicate and accurate, the take is hard and with no lactic acid build up to tire them, the fight can be brutal. Alphonse Island, Seychelles is one of the few places where there are consistently large numbers of milkfish to even the odds and give you a realistic chance of landing one of these magnificent creatures on fly.
Enjoy the short clip which we have loaded here and let’s hope its not too long before the full film is out.
St Francois Atoll was on top form over the past week. An event occurred that only happens once every few years. Massive schools of rabbitfish formed bait balls and moved into the lagoon which in turn made the GT’s go absolutely wild. The GT fishing was fantastic over the last week coupled with amazing bonefishing and even a few permit and triggerfish being caught in between. Not only was the flats fishing amazing but also the bluewater angling, with anglers landing some catches of a life time.
Ten years ago, work started on constructing the Delphi Club on a beautiful, deserted beach in south Abaco. Financed by Peter Mantle and a group of fishing friends from Ireland, Britain and the US, the venture quickly established itself as one of the finest fishing lodges in the world.
