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 – Testing Week On Farquhar But Still Great Catches

22 March 2020

Farquhar Atoll Fishing News | 11th – 18th March 2020

This week of Farquhar guests faced some of the most challenging weather yet. With very little sunlight, lots of rain and high winds; the team managed to brave it out and still land some awesome fish.

Despite the testing weather conditions and poor visibility the anglers persevered and between ten anglers we were able to bring in eight GT’s. Of these eight both Bill and Thomas settled the scores and landed two each for the week.

The biggest GT of the week was caught by Jersey on the final hours of the last day amongst a group of fish feeding on needlefish, it measured in at 90 cm. Jersey also managed to land the only bumphead parrotfish of the week close to Second Island. Thomas pushed on and he also landed a trophy moustache triggerfish – the only triggerfish of the week.

All the anglers can be proud of themselves for pushing through the testing conditions and landing noteworthy catches.

Tight Lines,
The Alphonse Fishing  Co. Team on Farquhar Atoll

TOTAL CATCH STATS FROM 10 ANGLERS THIS WEEK:

  • Giant Trevally: 8
  • Triggerfish: 1
  • Bumphead parrotfish: 1
