The Republic of Seychelles comprises 115 islands 900 miles off the east coast of Africa, 1,800 miles northeast of Madagascar. The Seychelles is world renowned for its saltwater fly fishing, and there’s no better place to experience it than Alphonse Island, a five-star fishing lodge in the outer islands.
