This is Fly Magazine will be taking their yearly trip to the Seychelles. We are hosting two weeks on Providence during April 3-10 and 10-17, 2018. There is limited availability for the first week. Providence must rank as one of the wildest places on the planet and one of the last great frontiers for saltwater fly fishing. Guests are expected to arrive in Mahe the day before the starting day of the trip which commences with a charter flight to Farquhar. The group will meet an hour before the scheduled departure time at the domestic terminal (next to the international terminal). The flight from Mahe to Farquhar is 1 hour 45 min onboard a private chartered Beechcraft 1900. Guests are met by their guides for the week at the landing strip and are then led on a 5 min walk to the bay where the MV Dugong which will be their home and base for the weeks fishing, is anchored.
The MV Dugong is an ex-research vessel which has been upgraded and modified into a mother ship catering for long range sea voyages. The vessel can accommodate up to twelve fly fishermen, four FlyCastaway guides, as well as eight crew members who cater for our guests every need. A large, spacious and extremely stable vessel, the MV Dugong is the perfect base with which to explore the remote outer atolls of the Seychelles and other Indian Ocean waters. As a fly fisherman it would be difficult to find a better boat from which to operate out of, with its ability to store and transport four tender boats on its spacious aft deck.
The group will spend the next six days fishing and exploring the islands, flats and channels of Providence Atoll. On the seventh evening the mothership will cruise back to Farquhar. The following morning the group will have plenty of time to pack their gear before their return charter flight, following which guests can connect to their international flights or overnight in Mahe.
During your stay on the vessel there will be four FlyCastaway guides including one head guide onboard. Each guide is a qualified skipper, has first aid experience and is extremely experienced with regards all facets of fly fishing these remote saltwater destinations. Their passion and dedication is infectious and rest assured they will definitely go the extra mile in search of your fish of a lifetime.
