Making dreams Come True

Oman, for many years, has been making saltwater fly anglers dreams come true. It has been kept a little below the radar until the Arabian Fly Sport Fishing company explored the entire coastline and decided to set up its operation. They can now proudly offer the chance to fish this stunning and remote destination in the first-class comfort with some of the most experienced guides.

A considerable advantage of fishing in Oman is the varied opportunities from inshore and offshore from their stylish boats. Then you have the beach fishing where you will be chasing tailing Indo-Pacific Permit Fishing Oman, Omani Bream, Milkfish, Queenfish, Bluefish, Pompano, and multiple Trevally species all can be fished for on this fantastic fishing adventure.

We have some amazing saltwater fly fishing videos including Permit Fishing Oman over on our Youtube Channel that may give you some inspiration and help when choosing what holiday would suit you. Being able to see what to expect is a massive help in deciding where to travel. Head over to the Sportquest Holidays Youtube channel.

Arabian Flys Commitment to Conservation

The coastline in Oman is a true fisherman’s paradise, with it being one of the most rugged and diverse places you are likely to find. From long sandy beaches to the sheer cliff faces, it truly is a dream location to fish.

Since Arabian Fly set up business there, they have been looking at protecting the important fishery. The first project they got involved in was the tagging of Permit. With a bit of help from The Bonefish and Tarpon Trust (BTT), their main goal was to gather as much data on the Indo-Pacific Permit Fishing Oman as possible, which will help protect their population in Oman and their habitats.

“We hope, in time, that this program will bring many exciting changes to an already beautiful region in Oman and help to protect the unique fishing grounds, beaches and above all the outstandingly special Indo Pacific permit population that we are so lucky to be able to enjoy here”

Fishing Around Oman

As previously mentioned, the diversity of Permit Fishing Oman is what attracts lots of anglers each year, from inshore and offshore boat fishing to spectacular and remote beach fishing. When you head out for your day’s boat fishing, there are no long journeys as the main drop-offs are a few minutes from the dock; this allows you to maximise your fishing time.

Each day you will get the opportunity to fish the morning for large shoals of tailing Permit and many other species whilst drifting along the vast cliff faces or exploring the shallow beaches and secluded bays. Then if you wish, you can switch it up and spend the afternoon relaxing while you troll for billfish along the drop-offs. At certain times of the year, it is possible to cast to sizeable busting bait balls of Tuna, which are great fun on light tackle.

If you decide to fish the many long sandy beaches and secluded bays, you will need to be aware that it’s not for the faint-hearted as it requires long hikes and then when you find the fish, you may find that running up and down the beaches chasing tailing fish is the order fo the day.

Offshore fishing days are a great alternative and with them only being a few minutes from the dock, it’s a great way to spend days fishing. You can choose to either fly fish or use conventional tackle while fishing offshore; all supplied free of charge. You will find a full range of Penn conventional and spinning gear on board with an extensive array of teasers and lures that will cover any species you may encounter.

Oman Fishing Boats & Guides

There are two boats available at Arabian Fly Fishing, the fantastic 30ft offshore boat, equipped with all the latest electronics. Twin 200 four-stroke Yamaha engines, Furuno electronics and radar, will see you to the fishing marks quickly and in comfort.

The inshore fishing boat ‘Arabian fly’ is a custom-built fly fishing machine. It has a 24ft hull, twin four-stroke engines, front and rear raised casting decks, lean posts and under deck fly rod racks.

The guiding and owner team, Clare and Brandon King, are some of the best in the area at putting people in front of the elusive Indo-Pacific Permit. Brandon has been fishing for as long as he can remember and started guiding back in 2007 in Mozambique, fishing both blue water and the coastal mangrove system. He has travelled and fished worldwide from Cuba, Seychelles, Sudan, Australia, Zambia, Tanzania, Madagascar, Mozambique, Scotland, England, UAE, Oman, Slovenia, Mexico and South Africa. So you will be in very safe hands.

Clare King started life in Marketing and spent the start of her working life in London. Still, fishing has always been her passion and has seen her travel the globe and fish places such as Florida, Alaska, Cuba, Russia, Seychelles, Australia, Scotland, England, UAE, Oman, Slovenia and Mexico. She now devotes her time to guiding and the management and marketing of Arabian Fly and working on ways to promote conservation within Oman, focusing on our newly launched Permit tagging project.

Gregory

The fishing guides were exceptional and really knew the waters and fishing grounds. I landed some stunning Permit and an abundance of Queenfish, which fight incredibly hard and often came completely clear of the water. The boutique hotel was first class and the rooms and food were amazing.

From the moment I left my front door to the moment I returned home my week was simply perfect. The fishing gods must have been looking over me too, as the bite was red hot all week. When I booked I was told how lovely the Juweira Boutique Hotel was and I certainly wasn't disappointed, it was luxurious.
