We have just returned from an exciting trip away to…
We are pleased to be returning to remote New Caledonia to chase trophy bonefish in 2019.
New Caledonia lies in the heart of the South Pacific and has arguably, swimming around its shores the biggest bonefish on the planet. New Caledonia, surrounded by a 1,600 km long coral reef, second in size only to Australia’s Great Barrier Reef also boasts the largest lagoon in the world. These geographic features have created sandflat habitats, ideal for bonefish and a hoard of other tropical species that make for a great fly fishing destination.
Located in the far north of Grand Terre or New Caledonia, the journey to get to the Northern Province and Poingam by road takes you the entire 400km length of the country, past a chain of mountain ranges, pot-holes and small villages which is an adventure in itself. Against a backdrop of mountains, rainforests, rivers, savannah and beaches live some of the most traditional communities on this French influenced, South Pacific outpost. The customs of ancient times are still practised by many of the Kanak people and permission is required to enter and fish in this remarkable part of the world.
Dates: 28th May – 5th June, 2019.
Rods: 2 rods available
Inclusions: 5 days fully guided fly-fishing and 6 nights full board in Poingam (twin share), return private vehicle transfers throughout New Caledonia, one night’s accommodation (twin share) at the Hilton in Noumea, one night at the Sheraton Diva Resort and Spa Bourail (twin share), comprehensive pre-trip guide and hosted guidance throughout the week.
