Places yet to discover

Arguably the best and the biggest GT fishery on the planet....

Providence is a very special saltwater flyfishing destination. It is the least explored atoll in the Seychelles and arguably the best GT fishery on the planet. Huge shoals of Bumphead Parrotfish, various Grouper species, Milkfish, Triggerfish, Bonefish and big Barracuda are also found on the flats. Offshore it is possible to target Billfish, Yellowfin and Dogtooth Tuna, Wahoo and GTs. Lots more to experience here. Providence is the biggest fishable atoll in the Seychelles and there are areas that are still yet to visit. There are a maximum of 12 expeditions to Providence per year in an attempt to minimize the fishing pressure and ensure you really do get what you pay for (no more than 6 trips per season block).

Plan and execute your fishing dreams....

Providence contains two major landmasses, namely Providence North and Cerf Island. Who knows where your success lie, but you will encounter a great number of opportunities to connect with so many exciting species, The Average Day - Typically anglers will be up early and after a quick breakfast head out to the flats to fish the first tide. You will generally stay out on the flats with a packed lunch, but there is the option to come back to mothership for lunch if the tide allows. The following day’s activities and schedule will be planned the night before between the guides and the captain. If you have any preferences please feel free to mention it to the guides. Current tidal movement and the species anglers wish to target will be taken into consideration. Plan and execute your fishing dreams. This is the place to make them happen.

a species enthusiast's nirvana....

Providence is a large and uninhabited atoll in the Seychelles that has remained largely untouched over the centuries. Only the lucky few have ever been to this place and with fisher numbers kept low, this exclusivity will live on for a very long time. It is no doubt one of the most exciting and diverse saltwater fly fishing destination on the planet. The sheer size of the atoll and endless amount of fish holding areas provide limitless flats and offshore angling potential. It is a true fly fishing wilderness! Anglers can expect to target and cast to large Giant Trevally, Bumphead Parrotfish, Triggerfish, Bluefin Trevally, Milkfish and Bonefish. The atoll does however play host to numerous other flats and offshore species, including Indo-Pacific Permit, Napoleon Wrasse, Bohar Snapper, Barracuda, Sailfish, Tuna etc. It is a species enthusiast’s nirvana! Providence offers fly fishermen the opportunity to wade and sight fish a possible 46 kilometres of pristine sand and turtle grass flats. Visualise the enormous lagoon system, as well as the countless channels and drainages that link these structures to the Indian Ocean and you start getting the picture.
