Providence spring weeks have been dead man’s shoes for some time due to its huge popularity amongst the saltwater fraterntity and rightly so. Fly fishing for giant trevally on Providence Atoll in the Seychelles is the stuff of angler’s dreams. This remote and unspoiled atoll offers a fly fishing experience like no other. The crystal-clear flats and lagoons that surround the atoll provide the perfect habitat for these powerful and aggressive fish. Giant trevally are the apex predators of these waters, and targeting them with a fly rod is a true test of skill, patience, and strength. Peter has just returned from his annual trip, so keep an eye out for his trip report.

The sheer size and strength of giant trevally make them a formidable adversary for any fly angler. These fish can easily tip the scales at over 60 lb, and when hooked, they’ll put your gear to the test with blistering runs and powerful headshakes. The thrill of casting a precisely tied fly into the flats and watching a GT explode onto the surface in pursuit is an unforgettable moment. The challenge of presenting the fly accurately and enticingly to these cunning predators is what makes fly fishing for giant trevally on Providence Atoll such a unique and rewarding experience.
