Providence is the final frontier! It is the largest fishable coral atoll in the Indian Ocean. The hottest and newest destination in the Seychelles for all fly fishermen, who have ever wanted to target huge GT’s and monster Bonefish. This Atoll ranks among the best fly-fishing destinations in the world.
The Providence Atoll is part of the Farquhar Group consisting of two Islands named Providence North and Cerf. These islands are surrounded by vast sandbanks, flats and channels. It is a unique atoll with its interlinking lagoon systems, where at low tide the lagoons form meandering rivers and small cascading waterfalls that flow out into the aquamarine Indian Ocean.
Providence is renowned for its large fish populations and mass expanse of wadeable flats offering adventurous anglers a hugely diverse array of fishing opportunities. These vast areas offer first class flats fishing for countless species, including GT’s, Bonefish, Milkfish, Permit and Triggerfish.
With only 12 anglers and 4 guides each week, each customer has all the attention required. But just how good is the fishing? One group recently caught 35 GT’s in just an afternoon’s session. The average for a week between the 12 anglers is between 70 to 120 GT’s for the week.
If that was not enough, what about chasing the monster Bonefish with many caught at 10lb and over. Then throw in fishing for species like Permit, Barracuda, Milkfish, Triggerfish, Bumphead Parrotfish and the offshore species like Sailfish, Dogtooth Tuna, Yellowfin Tuna and Wahoo that are often found just off the reef edge on the fly.
