Farquhar Atoll is the most southerly atoll in the Seychelles chain of islands lying just over 700km to the southwest of the main island Mahe. This remote atoll has a total area, including the large lagoon, of 170.5 km² which is 18 km north to south and 9 km east to west.
The large ear-shaped lagoon provides easy access to the countless flats, channels and surf zones which make Farquhar such an diverse fishery.
Farquhar Atoll is one of the few Seychelles destinations where you will have the chance to target bumphead parrot fish on the flats.
They are most certainly one of the most powerful tailing fish you are likley to encounter. They shoal in numbers between 5 and 30 fish and can be seen from a mile away when waving their big blue tails in the air.
Farquhar is certainly best known for the sheer diversity of species it offers anglers, so if stalking bonefish in skinny water, throwing crab flies at the colourful and charismatic tailing triggerfish or holding your nerve as a large GT charge in at your fly interests you…well, then Farquhar is certainly the fly fishing destination for you.
Farquhar also provides some truly exceptional offshore fly-fishing. Milkfish, sailfish, barracuda, wahoo, yellowfin tuna, dogtooth tuna and a host of others prowl the bluewater just off the flats, providing even further species to tick off your bucket list.
The Farquhar fly fishing season will run from September to early May. We cater for 10 anglers per week.
Guests are accommodated in twin en-suite chalets facing the magnificent Farquhar lagoon.
A central dining and bar area lets you socialise alongside the shoreline, with cuisine offering the very best of traditional Creole creations.
Farquhar consistently produces some of the finest saltwater fly fishing on the planet. The huge variety of species, together with its diverse flats and offshore scenarios, make Farquhar a complete saltwater experience for the travelling angler.
