It was another spectacular week here on Farquhar as again multiple target species were landed and with the weather starting to settle, it made for a great week for the 8 anglers down on the flats this week.
Michael got stuck into the Bonefish and wrapped a large number of them. His biggest as well as the biggest for the week was a very impressive 65 cm fish. He sadly lost a big Indo-Pacific Permit. However, this did not dampen his spirits as he landed a 51cm Moustache Triggerfish, a GT and a Bone on the same day, giving him a Flats Slam. He ended up with a few more GTs as the week moved on.
Charles had a terrific time. He managed to land all but the Permit during his stay with us. He landed a few GTs, a Triggerfish, Bones and the highly sort after Bumphead Parrotfish. Brian landed a very impressive 102 cm GT in the surf together with a pair of Bonefish. Sadly he lost five Bumpies and a monster GT after a lengthy fight.
Dick certainly landed one of the fish of the week. A glorious 51cm Permit together with a few Bonefish. Brian and Sonya had a fairytale trip. Brain landed two GTs of 109 cm each on the same day. One of those fish was a double up with his wife Sonya who managed a 91cm GT, her first-ever. A very special moment for both of them. Brian then went on to land a GT, a Yellowmargin Triggerfish, bonefish and his first Bumphead Parrotfish in one day. An excellent Super Slam. Sonya also managed a Moustache Triggerfish during the week and Brian with a great 81cm Napoleon Wrasse.
Seychelles veterans Ian and Ty also wrapped up some decent GT numbers with the biggest belonging to Ian, a 97cm fish. They also each landed a Bumpy after losing a few throughout the week. Ty landed the hugely appreciated Napoleon Wrasse on the flats.
