The remote atoll has a total area, including the large lagoon, of 170.5 km² and has a serviced concrete landing strip situated on the most northerly island. The main group of islands form a long curve which forms the eastern side of the atoll.
The large ear-shaped lagoon provides easy access to countless flats, channels and surf zones which make this such a diverse fishery. Farquhar has only a very a small population of locals.
The group trip includes six days fishing and exploring the islands, flats, channels and blue water of Farquhar Atoll.

Bumphead Parrotfish are a tough, challenging quarry and can be seen tailing in shallow water around this atoll. For both GT and Bumpies, this could well be the best place on earth to sight cast to both species on foot.
Farquhar consistently produces some of the finest saltwater fly fishing on the planet. The huge variety of species, together with its diverse flats and offshore scenarios make Farquhar a complete saltwater experience for the travelling angler.
Flats species include GT, Bluefin Trevally, Bonefish, Bumphead Parrotfish, Moustache and Yellow-Margin Triggerfish. Also Barracuda, Indo-Pacific Permit, Golden Trevally, Napoleon Wrasse, Bohar Snapper and more.
Also this fishery provides some truly exceptional offshore fly-fishing. Milkfish, Sailfish, Barracuda, Wahoo, Yellowfin Tuna, Dogtooth Tuna and a host of others prowl the bluewater just off the flats, providing even further species to target with no additional costs or long journeys.
