French Polynesia Live-Aboard Without question, this is the ultimate bonefishing expedition. From the comfort of a beautiful 58-foot French Catamaran,six anglers will explore the untapped bounty of Polynesia’s Tuamotu Archipelago – a true tropical paradise characterized by uninhabited islands, white sand flats, and large unsophisticated bonefish that have rarely, if ever, seen a fly. These heavy-shouldered fish range from 4 to 12 pounds and chase flies with reckless abandon.
Featuring an experienced captain, a full-time chef, and a seasoned Polynesian sailor, life aboard the boat is both comfortable and relaxed. Anglers sleep two per berth, each complete with ventilation, air-conditioning, and compact ensuite bathrooms. Add to that skilled American guides, a host of breathtakingly beautiufl and proven flats, and time to explore new areas where no fly anglers have ever fished before, and you will quickly come to understand why this is among the most interesting saltwater destinations in the world today. Incredible snorkeling, sea kayaking,birding, and virgin beaches make this trip a natural for non-anglers as well.
Best suited to private parties of six, these trips are most enjoyed by skilled anglers content with low numbers of very large bonefish. In addition to excellent flats fishing, certain moorages provide excellent and exciting reef fishing for a wide range of exoticspecies. For the true saltwater explorer, this trip offers solitude,incredible natural beauty, and some of the world’s heaviest and mosthandsome bonefish.
