Itchy Trigger hits Providence Atoll, Seychelles

Itchy Trigger

A few weeks before my annual trip to Providence Atoll in the Seychelles I suddenly realised I needed to get my kit organised. On closer inspection, I discovered that my one full fly pack had been decimated from the previous along with my box of crabs and shrimps. I quick call to Steve Carew at Fulling Mill and the situation was resolved. We had worked together on a few patterns over the winter such as … Read More Itchy Trigger hits Providence Atoll, Seychelles

Fly Fishing for European Sea Bass in Northern Brittany

Fly fishing for Sea Bass

A Day on Providence Atoll, Seychelles

Providence Atoll, Seychelles

There is one atoll in the Indian Ocean that little is known about; only a few have visited the atoll and even fewer have fished it – Providence. One of the largest in the Seychelles, Providence is over 140 km² and is accessed following a five-hour sail from Farquhar. Since its closure in late 2009 only a few vessels have visited it to fish, so it still remains largely unexplored. I have been trying to … Read More A Day on Providence Atoll, Seychelles

It’s been on my bucket list for many a year to experience the “Ghost” of the flats, and with nearly eighteen months in the planning the trip became reality in mid-June of this year.  I had teamed up with Fly Odyssey who made the booking and looked after all the necessary arrangements to Ascension Bay. It made life so simple with a group of us and nothing to worry about apart from remembering the fishing … Read More The Taste of Salt is oh so sweet – Ascension Bay 2016
