Farquhar Atoll

One of the most exotic saltwater fly fishing destinations in the world

Located 400 miles SW of Mahe, Farquhar Atoll is the Southern-most atoll in the Seychelles and is accessed via a one hour and 45 minutes charter flight. Known for its species variety, the flats consist of hard white sand, turtle grass and broken coral which makes for perfect wading conditions for the variety of species that roam the flats. Bluewater fly fishing is also available.

Fishing

Farquhar offers sight fishing for giant trevally, bonefish, Indo-Pacific permit, triggerfish, and bumphead parrotfish to name a few or with bluewater close by, try your luck at some of the monsters of the deep; sailfish, tuna and wahoo. High quality wading boots are required.

Accommodation

The new lodge and guest houses will be ready for upcoming season. The three separate duplex style chalets will feature two beds in each room, air-conditioning and en-suite bathrooms. The lodge will have a communal social area, dining room, bar and the popular open air dining area has been rebuilt.

Gear

The outfitter recommends a 9wt for bonefish and permit, 10wt for triggerfish and milkfish and a 12wt for the trevally, bumphead parrotfish and bluewater, all matched with a quality reel with a proven drag system. A complete gear list will be sent upon confirmation of the trip.
