Overview

Farquhar Atoll is the most southerly atoll in the Seychelles chain of islands lying just over 700km to the southwest of the main island Mahe. This remote atoll has a total area, including the large lagoon, of 170.5 km² which is 18 km north to south and 9 km east to west.

The large ear-shaped lagoon provides easy access to the countless flats, channels and surf zones which make Farquhar such a diverse fishery.

FLY FISHING AT FARQUHAR ATOLL

Farquhar Atoll is one of the few Seychelles destinations where you will have the chance to target humphead parrotfish on the flats.

They are most certainly one of the most powerful tailing fish you are likely to encounter. They shoal in numbers between 5 and 30 fish and can be seen from a mile away when waving their big blue tails in the air.

Farquhar is certainly best known for the sheer diversity of species it offers anglers, so if stalking bonefish in skinny water, throwing crab flies at the colourful and charismatic tailing triggerfish or holding your nerve as a large GT charge in at your fly interests you…well, then Farquhar is certainly the fly fishing destination for you.

Farquhar also 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 tick off your bucket list.
