Two rods have become available in the first week at the new lodge on Astove Atoll in the Seychelles, this lodge has all the markings of being GT central.
In past years, Cosmoledo Atoll has become known as the best GT fishery in the world but few know of our well kept secret. A stones throw away from Cosmoledo lies the small but ultimate saltwater flats destination called Astove, which is where we have always caught all our really big GT’s and lots of them. Its shallow lagoon with one small entrance that is surrounded by sheer drop-offs teeming with fish makes it the best and wildest fly fishing destination on this planet. The fishing for GT’s has been so good in recent times that anglers have caught over 40 in a session. Not only does Astove have lots of big GT’s but also Bonefish, Permit, Barracuda, Milkfish, Bluefin Trevally, Triggerfish, Yellowfin Tuna, Dogtooth Tuna, Wahoo, Sailfish and Marlin. It is a world filled with colour, where the daily dramas of a pristine ecosystem play out in front of your very eyes, a rare exclusive opportunity and privilege to gaze into a world which has changed very little in the years that have passed. The difficult anchorage due to a sheer wall that drops off to over a 1000 meters with in a few hundred meters from shore has meant that our visits have been limited in the past.
Now that the Astove runway is complete and the new Astove lodge will be completed by February 2015, 6 lucky anglers per week will have this atoll all to themselves while staying on terra firma. The group will spend 7 nights in our lodge and have 6 and a half full days fly fishing and exploring this remote atoll. Teams will comprise of 2 anglers and 1 guide fishing either from a skiff or on foot depending on the chosen fishing area and tide. The accommodation is rustic but comfortable, comprising of 6 en-suite single occupancy bedrooms.
Week 1: 9 – 16 February 2015, 2 rods.
Fly fishing package rate USD 14,950
The cost includes non alcoholic drinks but excludes the park fee of USD 175.
