Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Dubai’s first fly fishing outfitter offering five star fishing at the base of some of the world’s biggest skyscrapers and luxury hotels – Urban Fly Fishing at its best.
Size has been synonymous with Dubai as it continues to build the first, largest and the biggest construction projects in the world. While Dubai constantly dwells in a suppressive competition with itself trying to magnetize tourists to a dreamy world of attractions and unheard of luxuries, it has some truly amazing fly fishing right in the middle of all of this luxury and mind blowing attractions.
Incredible fishing for large queenfish, golden trevally, cobia and more
The Arabian Gulf is a shallow body of water that has a huge abundance of life from the smallest baitfish to big game fish. It is quite astonishing the amount of fish in the middle of Dubai under the towering skyscrapers and luxury Hotels. Dubai has built everything bigger and better and this includes building the biggest man made reefs in the world. The Palm and World islands have changed the face of Dubai but more importantly created huge habitats for small juvenile fish which attract the bigger game fish and in turn attracts us as fisherman. We are lucky to have a wide variety of species patrolling the shallow waters close into Dubai.
The main target species are the ever present queenfish which are truly a perfect fly fishing and light tackle species, they are big, aggressive and jump once hooked making for an amazing visual spectacle from the take to the fight to landing the fish. We have a wide variety of species to target including golden trevally, yellowdot trevally, orange spot trevally, barracuda, cobia, king fish and many more.
Fishing off Dubai is unique and we refer to it as urban fishing as you are at times fishing in front of the 7 Star Burj Al Arab Hotel, Atlantis Hotel or the 200 skyscrapers in the Dubai Marina. Our trips are easy and usually half day in the morning or afternoon leaving enough time to explore the many sights of Dubai. Dubai is the perfect destination for a quick holiday, Business trip, lay over on your way to another destination or if you live in UAE and want to cure the fishing bug.
