The Seychelles offers some of the finest saltwater fly fishing in the world. With space for the 2019/2020 season quickly selling at all of the destinations, Frontiers’ reserved a prime week at the lodge that started it all, Alphonse Island. Join host, Toby Burrell of our UK office, for a week of invigorating fishing, great food, and stimulating conversation. Don’t miss this opportunity! The dates are Saturday, January 25 to Saturday, February 1, 2020. There are currently only six spots available, and if interested you need to act quickly.
With the new moon on Friday, January 24, the lodge considers this week as prime time to fish for a multitude of species: GT and bluefin trevally, bonefish, multiple species of triggerfish, Indo-Pacific permit, milkfish, bohar snapper, and the list goes on. Over 50 species have been caught on a fly at Alphonse using a variety of fly fishing methods. Sight fishing the flats is the favorite but don’t pass up the opportunity to fish the edge of the reef, deepwater dredge or fish the blue water for fish not found on the flats.
Alphonse is also an excellent destination for a non-angler spouse or friend. Outdoor enthusiasts can scuba dive, snorkel, paddleboard, kayak, play tennis, swim, bicycle, hike, take a guided reef walk and more or bring a few of the latest bestselling books and totally chill out.
The rate for the seven-night/six-day package in the standard beach bungalow is $9,840 for the angler and $6,815 for the non-angler. Rates are per person, single/shared room accommodations and shared boat for the angler. Upscale beach suite accommodations are available. Please call or email for rates.

Other weeks are available at Alphonse Island or venture to one of the more remote land-based destinations like Astove Island, Cosmoledo Atoll or Farquhar Atoll, all excellent choices.
