Farquhar Atoll Fishing News 27th – 3rd October 2021
Week two on Farquhar saw the wind dropping considerably. This meant we were able to venture out to enjoy the atoll to its fullest. The majority of the guests were GT focused. This was evident in the final tally for the week, reaching a very impressive 75 . However, there were some other incredible catches throughout the week.
Our long-standing friend Stanislav Egorov along came with a newcomer to the flats Stanislav Gorbunov. They had a great week catching several GTs and bonefish. Sadly Stanislov Egorov lost three bumphead parrotfish on the last day.
Aaron Banks and Ladd Nolin had a wonderful week that started with a bumphead parrotfish on the first day. With that box ticked, they focused on wrapping up the GT numbers and ended their week on a high with an impressive 15 GTs. Ladd also caught a 63 cm bonefish to go with it.
Laurent Dobler and Tim Lewis consistently added to the GT tally with some great catches. Laurent landed the fish of a lifetime, a 119 cm GT. Everyone on the skiff will not forget the way that fish ate the fly. Tim had a solid week with a good number of GTs and landed the forever welcomed Napoleon wrasse. He sadly lost his bumpy as it bit clean through the hook close to the net.
Mike Harris and Joe Pehanick shot the lights out this week with the most GTs in the week. Joe managed to land an impressive 111 cm GT together with a splendid Napoleon wrasse.
James Henchey and William Harris were very focused on GTs, and their dedication paid off with James landing an excellent 105 cm and the largest of the season, a monstrous 120 cm GT.
