Providence Fly Fishing

Providence has it all: GTs, Bumphead Parrotfish, Sailfish, Yellow Margin and Moustache Triggerfish

Providence has it all: GTs, Bumphead Parrotfish, Triggerfish and Bones. This enormous atoll is just short of being the most southerly atoll in the Seychelles, lying 710km south west of Mahe.

The Fishing

The major attractions angling wise lie in the 30 miles of fishable flats, channels, cuts and lagoons that lie between Providence North and Cerf island. Fishing conditions include sand and Turtlegrass flats, the surf zone and an enormous lagoon system along with the hundreds of channels and drainage areas. Providence has it all, shoals of up to 50 GTs rampaging across a Turtlegrass edge, Bumphead Parrotfish waving their paddle sized-tails as they scour the bottom in search of a feed, fields of Yellow Margin and Moustache Triggerfish on the slower neap tides and the bonefishing during certain tides proving to be quite special, with very few fish falling below the 5lb mark.
