Farquhar Atoll Fishing Report 19th March 2022

This week saw the re-opening of the Farquhar season after the Christmas and New Years’ break. The fishery and the guides were well-rested and ten anglers were eager to get out to the flats to start their weeks’ fishing. 

Veterans of the flats, Ian and Ty, had a great week, each with several GTs to their names. Ian also managed to land a Moustache Triggerfish.

Klaus and Christina had a dream start to their week as they landed nine GTs between them on the first day along with a handful of Bonefish. They didn’t stop there as they each managed to get a Flats Slam on the same day consisting of a GT, Triggerfish and Bonefish. A very special day for them to remember!

John managed to land a GT every day along with some decent Bonefish. Sadly he missed the Bonefish when he needed it the most to complete the Flats Slam. That day he managed to land three Moustache Triggerfish with the biggest being a hefty 45 cm! He also landed a decent 87cm GT that was hooked and landed well into the surf zone, which he did well to present his fly in deep water and rolling waves.

Robert had a cracker week as he managed to land the only two Bumphead Parrotfish of the week. Sadly, true to their nature, once in hand they didn’t stick around to get a decent photo. He also managed to land the only GT over the 1-metre mark with a very impressive 105 cm beast.

Newcomers to the saltwater flats, Vasili, Andrew, Jake and Brad improved drastically throughout the week, and all managed to land their first GTs, and Andrew managed to land the first Moustache Triggerfish of the week. Jake came so close to breaking the 1-metre mark with his still very impressive 99 cm GT caught cruising the shallow turtle grass flats.

Even with some unfavourable weather conditions from time to time, the team caught some great fish.

At the end of the week, the catch numbers were as follows.


Giant trevally 41

Bonefish 28

Triggerfish 7

Bumphead Parrotfish 2
