The long awaited Thomas & Thomas hosted week on Alphonse finally arrived, setting the tone for a fun week of comradery and exceptional fishing. All anglers were equipped and had only one goal in mind, have lots of fun and catch whatever swims. The “Holy Grail” was one of the first to be tamed by Neville Orsmond, the owner of Thomas and Thomas fly rods, when he held up one of the largest Indo-Pacific Permit for the season so far. The largest that he has seen to hand according to veteran guide, Serge Samson.

During their bluewater challenge the brothers collectively caught twelve wahoo, three sailfish and two yellow fin tuna in a half-day session. Freddy Bench has been knighted as the triggerfish master, also holding up his first Indo-pacific permit.
