Giant Trevally or Monster Browns?

Since I was a teenager I have always wanted to catch a bonefish. Last year I had the good fortune to spend 2 weeks in Alphonse,  Seychelles.

Wonderful place , heaven on earth.

 Whilst there, I was lucky enough to be guided by Graham....I think its fair to say he knows a thing or two about fishing! 

With an infectious enthusiasm for all things  piscatorial, and the enviable knack of being in the right place at the right time, you will go a long way to find better company in a boat.


Rutland  , six months later and I being guided by Graham again. I mostly fish rivers,  but was drawn to the lake after hearing the stories about massive browns from the top of the water . I have to say it was a pleasure to learn the finer arts of still water fishing, to improve my casting and also to catch my PB brown trout.

I would recommend Graham to anyone who is interested in a great days fishing/tuition and who knows maybe you will catch your PB as well?
