Of all the outer islands in the Seychelles I think Providence Atoll is my favourite and I have been going there every year since 2017 and am going back again in March 2022. There is something about its wild flats and remoteness from civilisation that has captured my heart. 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. There are still areas of the atoll that have not been fished or explored and where man has never trod.

The atoll is also the last mothership operation left. There is magical about living on a vessel for a week that moves around the atoll and allows access to different areas, 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.
We have just had a last minute cancellation on Providence Atoll in the Seychelles for the week 5 – 12 April for one rod. The cost is US$14,600 per rod including internal charter flights. Anyone considering this would need to depart on the 3rd April and will be returning 13 April 2022. After the last two years of being locked away if you are looking to truly get away and experience total freedom in one of the most prolific saltwater fisheries on the planet then this is your opportunity to do it now.
