Fly Fishing Adventures in SEYCHELLES:

Astove Atoll


Astove has become synonymous with the largest flats-caught GT’s in the Indian Ocean. Its shallow lagoon and small entrance, surrounded by sheer drop-offs makes the experience truly unique. This lagoon is a sanctuary for both juvenile and trophy-size fish that feed on the shallow white sand flats that line the inside of the lagoon. Astove is small and is surrounded by coral flats with deep drop-offs on the flats edge allowing predators easy access. Targeting tailing Indo-Pacific Permit in the lagoon is a favorite among anglers.

Not only does Astove have large GT’s but it also has an equally impressive bonefish, permit, bluefin trevally, triggerfish, barracuda and milkfish population. The offshore fishing starts only feet from the edge of the flats where you can test your tackle against species like yellowfin tuna, dogtooth tuna, wahoo and sailfish. The variety of grouper and snapper that can be caught weighted flies or sinking fly lines adds a new dimension to the amount of species you may tick off your list.

More about Astove Atoll

Astove is situated 655 miles southwest of Mahé and forms part of the remote Aldabra group of atolls in the Indian Ocean. It’s a small and unique atoll that spans less than 4 miles from north to south and 2.5 miles from east to west at the widest points. The shallow lagoon has one small entrance, and due to its elevation a phenomenon occurs whereby the tide falls like a river for ten hours of the 12-hour tidal cycle and then turns to flood the entire lagoon in only two hours.
