Description

Are you also looking for the ultimative fly fishing adventure in warm saltwater? Have you been dreaming about escaping from the winter during the last months? Giant Trevally, Bonefish und Triggerfish have always been on your bucked list? Then we have a new destination for you to let your dreams come true!

Already in early March I got an email from a old friend who wrote the following: "We are starting a new mothership operation in Lakkadives in November. This is like the Maldives 50 years ago."

Ok this statement set my expectations quite high, because fishing in the Maldives must have been a real dream 50 years ago and certainly still is in some areas. The images and the short film I saw a few days ago convinced me. The fishing in the Laccadives is fantastic!

To get to this new destination you have to fly to Kochi (India), from there you take a domestic flight to Agatti. There the 26 meter long mother ship will be waiting for you. This will be your home for the coming 6 days. The mother ship actually accommodate up to 8 people, but the number of fisherman is limited to 6, to keep fishing pressure as low as possible and to provide a little bit more space on the mother ship. The mother ship has been renovated in 2016 and offers a good comfort, but we have to say that it is not a luxury yacht.

This is not a "fly only" destination. Depending on the tide it can be difficult to fish with the fly, in this case it makes sense to take the spinning rod, to be able to fish as much as possible during the day.

The most interesting species for the fly fisherman are: Giant Trevally, Bluefin Trevally, Bonefish and Triggerfish. It is also possible to fish with the fly rod for Marlin, Sailfish and Tuna from the boat. With a spinning rod you will be able o fish for Giant Trevally, Napoleon Wrasse, Dogtooth Tuna, Barracudas, all types of Groupers and Snapper, Tuna, Red Seabass and many more. The season starts in the beginning of November and end in the end of April. The price is 4.990 USD per week.
