Alphonse Island Seychelles Trip Report 2015
Alphonse Island Seychelles Trip Report 2015: The Alphonse group of Atolls is considered one of the most pristine group of atolls in the world. The three islands of Alphonse, St. Francios, and Bijoutier make up the group of atolls. Located seven degrees south of the equator, 400 kilometers south west of the capital island Mahe, and 1600 kilometers off the east cost of Africa, to say the Alphonse group of atolls is remote is an understatement!
Our week in Alphonse started out as the previous weeks had in 2015 at Alphonse, with unseasonable cloudy and rainy weather. The weather was very unsettled and clocking from all directions during the days. It was a sharp reminder that no matter how far you travel to fly-fish you can never travel out of Mother Natures grasp and often when the weather does not cooperate you just have to make the best of it!
