Alphonse Island

Alphonse Island, Seychelles

The Alphonse group of islands comprise Alphonse, Bijoutier and St. Francois and offer some of the most exciting and varied flats fishing in the world. The accommodation, food and facilities make it a perfect choice for fishers and non-fishers alike.

Type of fishing

St. Francois is approximately 7 miles long and 4 miles wide, comprising a firm, white, sandy bottom interlaced with channels and cuts, making it ideal for wading as well as for boat fishing.

This is one of the most prolific bonefish fisheries in the world and you  can choose to fish for either quantity or quality. In addition, there are over 60 species to target on fly including: triggerfish, milkfish and giant trevally on the flats and sailfish, yellowfin tuna and others offshore. The fishing is very much tide dependent so conditions dictate which species to focus on.

The guides are excellent, have a comprehensive knowledge of the area you will be fishing and with the number of rods limited to twelve there is very little fishing pressure.
