Providence Atoll

April 3 - 11, 2023

Join Fly Water Travel's Brian Gies for a week of remote saltwater flats fishing for trevally, bonefish, triggerfish, and other exotic species. 

 

Providence Atoll ranks among the largest and least discovered fisheries in the Seychelles. This remarkable atoll has remained largely untouched, with fewer than a thousand people having visited this tropical wilderness in the last century. Pioneered and operated by FlyCastaway, the guides are convinced that Providence is the most exciting and diverse fly fishing destination they have ever encountered. The sheer size and amount of fish-holding area makes both the flats and offshore angling potential almost limitless.

Providence offers fly anglers the opportunity to wade and sight-fish a possible 46 kilometers of pristine sand and turtle grass flats, an enormous lagoon system as well numerous channels which link these structures with the Indian Ocean. Anglers can expect to target record-size giant trevally, bonefish, triggerfish, Indo-Pacific permit, milkfish as well as bumphead parrotfish from the comfrt of a large and well-equipped mothership.
