Cosmoledo Fly Fishing Season 2019 | 14 – 21 February
With the week moving into some big spring tides and some picture perfect weather the group this week were eager to hear some screaming reels!
With absolute glass-off conditions on day one and two the fishing was a little tricky. Never the less the guys still managed to produce the goods with all the boats landing a number of GT’s and seeing a lot more. A slight change in tactic to small flies in the calmer conditions seemed to be the answer and each day saw better and better catch results.
Michael Nowak had a good first day out on the water and landed a trophy fish of 107 cm. A good welcome back to Cosmo for Mike. Vladim Titovets had a good trip back to Cosmo landing a good number of GT’s, Bonefish and a couple of Triggers to round things off.
New to the Seychelles, Laurent Cathala and Gerhard Hoerl had a great week each landing their first ever Giant Trevally’s, but as usual it was Helmut Zaderer that stole the show! No stranger to Cosmo and its inhabitants, Helmut lived up to his namesake “Never-stop-casting”.
On the final day of the week with a strong pushing tide Helmut got stuck into the GT’s as they pushed in on the surf. He landed two fish over the magic 100 cm mark including an absolute beast of 113 cm.
Some postcard weather, great tides and great fishing made for smiles all around camp for the week. We look forward to keeping this hot streak going into next week.
