During our 2 year exploratory process we found many of the iconic flats species. Triggerfish, both yellow margined and titan, dominate the fishing on the flats. On top of these there are opportunities at GT’s, Bluefin and Bohar. There are also decent numbers of Permit and bonefish, and although unpredictable, there are shots at these fish each week.
Trevally & Dogtooth Tuna
GT’s and bluefin are found both on the flats and the flat edges. Each week some really spectacular fish are taking walking both the flats and the flat edges. On the flat edges a very productive method is teasing with a hookless plug. This fishing is high paced, very visual and extremely exciting. There are vast numbers of Doggies a short way off shore. In some instances doggies have been teased in and hooked, while the fly fisherman stands on
Grouper & Snapper
The Nubian flats produces some incredible bohar snapper, both in size and number. There are a variety of grouper species on the flat edges and offshore, all exciting fly rod targets.
These trips will be focused on the vast flats on the mainland as well as some small islands off the coast of Sudan. On the flats one can expect to encounter vast numbers of triggerfish, but be warned - although there are incredible numbers of triggers they are still tricky to catch. There are also consistent opportunities at big GTs, barracuda, bohar, mangrove snapper and Milkfish on the flats. Although unpredictable and tricky, there are chances every week at bonefish and permit.
The blue water and flat edges have the potential for producing exceptional catches of GTs, dogtooth tuna, bluefin, barracuda, bohar and grouper species. This fishing can be extremely exciting and high paced.
