The Seychelles Island Group lies between 4 and 10 degrees south of the equator. Just over one hundred islands make up this archipelago and can be assigned to one of two distinct groups; These groups being the inner and outer Islands.

The Inner Islands comprise of roughly 40 granite Islands. Mahe is the principle island in the group. The remaining seventy plus islands belong to the Outer Islands which extend in a SW direction towards the east coast of Africa. The outer islands are made up of 5 groups; The Amirante Islands, Alphonse Group, Aldabra Group, Farquhar Group, and Southern Coral Group. It is to these outer atolls that fly fisherman from around the globe are drawn to the unparallel flats and, not to be neglegted, blue water fly fishing on offer.

Tourette Fishing safaris focus on the Atolls of St Josephs (Amirante Islands), Cosmolido (Aldabra Group) and Farquhar (Farquhar Group). Each atoll offers unique fly fishing opportunities, to suite individual expectations and budgets. All accommodation is liveaboard, in yachts and catamarans ranging in size from 46 – 115ft. For general modus operandi followed when fishing the outer island atolls browse through the St Josephs Atoll Fly Fishing Safari.

Having an in depth understanding of how the different species of fish move and feed on the Atolls of St Joseph’s, Cosmolido and Farquhar is imperative should you want to full appreciate the world class flats fishing on offer. Bonefish, GT’s, trigger fish, permit, milkfish and the less publicized bumphead parrot fish and wrasse species are all popular targets. Fishing the correct location, at the right tide with the right tackle is vital for success.

The deep drop-offs surrounding these atolls offer world class blue water fishing. Sail fish, dogtooth tuna, yellow fin tuna, dorado and wahoo are all on offer. Hookless teasing is a productive method when targeting sailfish, wahoo and dorado. Deep dredging over mapped pinnacles and reef walls is also productive when targeting doggies and yellow fin tuna. On a couple of occasions we have even landed sail fish off the tender boats when transferring from the flats to the mother ship.

Tour guides have an in-depth knowledge of these dynamic atolls, are qualified skippers, and have a wealth of flats and blue water fly fishing experience. Their knowledge and skill, transferred to you, will make sure you fully experience the finest salt water fly fishing the Indian Ocean has to offer when you visit the wild outer islands of the Seychelles.
