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.

FARQUHAR ATOLL FISHING NEWS – Massive Bumpy for Week Five!

16 November 2019

Farquhar Atoll Fishing News  | 06 – 13 November 2019

Another week of flats fishing has come to an end. Weather conditions this week were tough early in the week but ended on a good note. At the start of the week we had generally windy conditions with some cloud cover. The wind tapered off towards the end of the week and the last day was absolutely perfect.

Tides this week started off in neap tides and moved toward full moon spring tides at the the end.

Seven GT‘s were caught this week with the largest fish, at 94 cm being landed by Andrew Jensen. Craig Jensen landed one GT, as did his brother Mark Jensen, and nephew Nick Jensen landed two.

Nicks first fish was his first ever GT. Nick and Chantel Chone landed a nice golden trevally each. Alan Broomhead and George McRobbie each landed one GT each.

Nick and his father Mark each landing bonefish of over 60 cm. Two bumpys were caught this week with Mark landing a huge 103 cm bumpy. Chantel also landed one bumpy. Two sailfish were landed this week, one by Alan and one by Andrew.

In our bluewater tally George McRobbie landed a yellowfin tuna and Genkel landed a wahoo.
Thanks to all our guests for the great week!
