St. Brandon’s Atoll

St. Brandon’s Atoll, Mauritius is possibly the best bonefishery in the world based on numbers, size, and willingness to eat a fly. St. Brandon’s Atoll (also know as Cargados Carajos Shoals) is a collection of 50 small islands with a total landmass of less than 1-mile some 200 miles off the cost of Mauritius, a small island Republic just east of Madagascar. In addition to the bonefishing, there’s a mix of trevally, including some of the biggest GT’s and more Indo-pacific permit are caught here than anywhere in the Indian Ocean. St Brandon’s Atoll is a remote location with a limited 12-week season. Since the mother ship accommodates 8 anglers per week, Mauritius offers exclusivity in addition to the world-class bonefishing in a remote location.

Other Locations in Africa

In addition to the fishing in the Seychelles and Mauritius, FlyCastaway offers 2 excellent Tigerfish destinations: Panyame Camp in Mozambique and the Mnyera & Ruhudji Rivers in Tanzania. Tigerfish are a voracious predator fish that can grow to more than 20 lbs and that make powerful runs and acrobatic jumps when hooked. The Payame Camp offers a diverse delta flood plain fishery where anglers can catch lots of Tigerfish on the fly. The Mnyera & Ruhudji Rivers in Tanzania offer the best chance for trophy Tigerfish.
