It’s great to see younger anglers in the sport of fly fishing, and it just goes to show that anyone can get involved and start fly fishing! This week boasted some fantastic conditions making for a great week on the flats. Ill now pass it over to the head guide for his words –
27th March – 13th April 2021
Anglers were treated this week to fantastic weather and brilliant tides. Alphonse was host to a small handful of guests this week who thoroughly enjoyed the fishing. The tides transitioned into a full moon spring tide allowing anglers to walk the surf line for most of the week.
We were lucky to be joined by Buck a seasoned Alaskan fly-fishing guide. Buck had some bad luck losing fish over the week but did manage to land a fantastic 55 cm moustache triggerfish while on a surf walk and then went on to top his week off landing a beautiful 30 cm permit on the last day of his week.
Duncan joined us for his very first flats fishing experience. Duncan did extremely well for his first time. He started his week off by landing his first bonefish and topped the day off by landing a monster 60 cm bonefish. Duncan was keen to land his first GT and spent most of the week hunting GTs in between the bonefishing. On day three Duncan finally went tight on a GT while popping behind the waves. After much perseverance, Duncan managed to land a wonderful 77 cm GT.
The Bonefish were out in full force over the week, with a total of 72 Bonefish being landed over the week between a small group of anglers with the largest Bone measuring 60 cm.
The bluewater fishing was also performing this week with Greg managing to land three sailfish on one day as well as one wahoo and then ended the week with another Ssailfish. Rod Thorrington managed to end his week off with a bang. Rod fished a half-day on the flats and then jumped on our bluewater boat in the afternoon and landed a Wahoo and a Sailfish.
Another fantastic week was spent at Alphonse Island fishing the St Francois Atoll. Memories were made and bonds were formed that will last a lifetime. Stay tuned for next week’s report as we are sure you won’t want to miss it.
