The Nubian Flats with Andy Archer

April 15 - 29, 2022

Extended Southern Circuit

Join Fly Water Travel's Saltwater Destination Manager Andy Archer for two weeks of remote saltwater flats fishing for triggerfish, trevally, and other exotic species at the Nubian Flats in Sudan.

In May 2013, the diverse and rugged coastline of the Red Sea was first explored with a fly rod by our friends at African Waters. What they found, and have continued to experience since then, is a rich ecosystem full of exotic species including incredible numbers of triggerfish, giant trevally, bluefin trevally, as well as the occasional bonefish and permit. Even more unique, all of these species are targeted on foot while wading the flats. Guests enjoy comfortable accommodations aboard a mothership and will fish with English speaking South African guides during their stay. Despite its reputation, Sudan is a safe and inviting place to travel and has been the center of an exploding diving industry for years. African Waters assists with all of the travel planning and ensures that your trip is safe, smooth, and truly unforgettable. Join Fly Water Travel's Andy Archer for this unique opportunity to experience a two week adventure to waters that seldom see flies!
