I have been doing the same saltwater fishing trip for the last four years, and I am going again next year – Providence Atoll in the Seychelles. Why is this you might ask? It’s a big world out there with plenty of saltwater destinations to explore. I would agree, and I have been lucky enough to fish many of them. So what is it that keeps me going back? A pristine atoll, an ecosystem that is home to a huge variety of species, massive populations of bonefish, giant trevally, triggerfish and milkfish, some of the most highly experienced and enthusiastic guides in the world and the chance to fish a true wilderness. What’s not to like?

Many of the outer atolls in the Seychelles have become land based, put down roots, built infrastructure and made the experience hugely comfortable alongside wonderful fishing opportunities. They have Wi-Fi and an easy connection to the outside world, excellent service that caters for your every need.

But I don’t want that. I love the feeling of setting off on an adventure on a mothership, knowing that there is no Wi-Fi and I can finally be unplugged for a whole week. I love that my world revolves around nothing but tides, tactics, fishing tackle, camaraderie, serious fly fishing, stunning sunsets, sitting under a starry sky listening to music and drinking a few beers before being rocked to sleep with the sound of waves on hull. On Providence you just have no idea what the next day will bring, you just know its going to be an adventure.

Providence Atoll consists of two Islands, Providence North and Cerf Island. These are surrounded and separated by vast sandbanks, flats and channels offering adventurous anglers a hugely diverse array of fishing scenarios. The atoll is 55 km long and 14 km wide offering some 345 square km of fishing. It offers a unique opportunity to wade for miles on open turtle grass flats hunting giant trevally, bumphead parrotfish and pretty much every saltwater species you might wish to tangle with a fly rod.

However, the word is out and space on Providence is going fast. If you want to go and experience this incredible place you had better get in quick. The whole of the spring 2020 season is already full.
