What does COVID-19 mean for our future?

While the bond a fly fisherman develops with nature is indescribable, COVID-19 has elevated our understanding of this relationship – the importance of nature is fundamental to many aspects of life. This has energised our vision for the future.

ALPHONSE ISLAND FISHING NEWS – This Season’s GT Record Broken!

18 March 2020

Alphonse Island Fishing News | 7th – 14th March 2020

We have had a great week on Alphonse and St. François Atoll. The weather has been good with a strong northwesterly blowing. We have had a full spring tide with a full moon over the week. Anglers landed some amazing catches over the week.

The bonefishing was brilliant as usual. Anglers managed to land a total of 280 bonefish with a lot of six – seven pound fish being landed.

Day two was a great start to the week for the legend Ron Benck. Ron landed two fantastic GT’s. The GT’s measured 90 cm and 92 cm. Paul Davidson, an Alphonse veteran, managed to land the biggest GT of the season on day two. Paul landed a whopping 125 cm GT expertly guided by Alphonse guide Warren on NYAP in between Bijoutier and St. François.

On day four David Hall landed two fantastic GT’s measuring 65 cm and 84 cm followed by two moustache triggerfish and two bonefish. Dave managed to land a double slam throughout the day. Geffery Thompson worked hard throughout the week to land his first GT. On day five he finally managed to land a beautiful 75 cm GT.

Another fantastic week was spent at Alphonse Island fishing St. François Atoll. Memories were made and bonds were formed that will last a lifetime. Stay tuned for next week’s report as we are sure you won’t want to miss it.

Tight Lines,
The Alphonse Fishing Co. Team on Alphonse Island
