All 12 rods are permitted to fly fish the lagoon at St. Francois and the blue water fishing opportunities are now operated by Alphonse Island Fishing Co. Alphonse Island continues to offer the most productive Bonefishing in the saltwater world of today. Fishing journalists and returning clients have raved about the schools of Bonefish, large Trevally and exciting Milkfish opportunities. Besides excellent flat fishing there are also great blue water fly fishing possibilities. Alphonse Island is located in the Alphonse group, 200 miles southeast of Mahé. Together with the islands Bijoutier and St. Francois, they exist in a breathtaking beauty and natural wonder. The Alphonse Island Resort is the only accommodation for true flat fishing in the entire Seychelles and is based in the middle of the Alphonse archipelago, situated close to the most productive Bonefish flats. The Alphonse Island Resort is a 5 - star lodge. All chalets have air conditioning, fans, fridge and a bath.Besides Bonefish you will have shots at African Pompano (Permit), Milkfish, Trevally species and Barracuda. The guides have an extensive saltwater fly fishing experience. Milkfish are very strong and very challenging. Hooking a Milkfish is just a spectacular as fighting a Tarpon. Most of the Bonefish are between 4-8 pounds, but fish have been caught also in the +10 pound range. Trevally species can be found sometimes on the flats but they are more common in the surf, channels or along the reef. Most of these fish are between 10 – 15 lbs. The Giant Trevally, the strongest, can grow over more than 40 pounds. The guides use teasing techniques to get the Trevallies out of the surf. For anything smaller just use a # 10 rod. In deeper water you will find also Rainbow Runners, Jacks and Tunas.
Season runs between Oktober – April/ May
