Overview of Poivre Atoll

Poivre Atoll lies just short of 300 km south of Mahé on the Eastern edge of the Amirantes Bank and is made up of two smaller islands, Poivre and Île du Sud. Separated by a shallow lagoon that extends all the way back to Île du Sud during high tide, this Atoll offers both stunning flats as well as one of the best bluewater fishing areas around.

Another unique attribute of Poivre Atoll, besides its geographical isolation and incredible access, is the area known as the Amirantes Trench. The sheer drop-off, which steps from 60 to 12,000 metres in a matter of kilometres, lends itself to rich currents and an abundance of various fish species.

Fly Fishing at Poivre Atoll

Poivre Atoll offers the best of both worlds with mind-blowing flats that will make any fly fishing enthusiast’s toes curl, right alongside thrilling bluewater fishing targeting species like sailfish, wahoo, yellowfin tuna and more.

It is particularly well-known for its world-class species like bonefish, Indo-Pacific permit as well as the occasional giant trevally on the flats.

One of the most famous parts of Poivre is an area called “The Kennels”, so-called for the record-breaking sized dogtooth tuna one can target here, with the current record fish caught standing at 75 kgs.

For the fly fisherman, this Atoll also offers incredible opportunities for targeting species like bonefish, Indo-Pacific permit and giant trevally on the flats.
