MAIN DESCRIPTION:

 

Anaa Atoll, located 350 Kilometres east of Tahiti, is a dot in the Pacific, situated in the Tuamotu Archipelago in French Polynesia. Stunningly beautiful and home to less than five hundred locals, the turquoise green Atoll is six and half kilometres wide by twenty-nine kilometres long with a fringing reef encompassing a huge lagoon, expansive sand and coral flats.

 

With a multitude of shallow passes out to sea along its entire length, it offers a range of fly-fishing options including good sized Bonefish, Blue Trevally, Giant Trevally and Triggerfish inside the lagoon with Big Bohar Snapper, Black Giant Trevally and Napoleon Wrasse available off the reef edges. Offshore, Dogtooth and Yellowfin Tuna can also be targeted, along with the huge range of reef species.

 

The Anaa Pension Lodge has four twin-share bungalows situated on a magnificent residence, fringing the lagoon. All rooms comprise a double and single bed, en-suite, fan and front balcony overlooking a private beach and swimming area. The lodge has a large communal dining-room, bar and lounge area also overlooking the lagoon and provides a great range of Polynesian cuisine daily.  Breakfast starts at 6:00am with local eggs, honey, fresh fruits and coffee, while packed lunches, water and soft drink are provided on the boats daily. Dinner consists of local seafood delicacies such as raw fish marinated in lime and coconut juice, grilled meats, chicken, fish and local suckling pig.

 

Catering for up-to six fly-fisherman (three anglers per boat), you will chase Bonefish, Triggerfish, Parrotfish, Bluefin and Striped Trevally on foot, while being guided by the best eyes on the island. With around ninety square kilometres of waters to explore, the small islands fringing the lagoon boast extensive sand and coral rubble flats providing an ideal habitat to cruising fish. While some very large Giant Trevally over a metre long have been seen in the lagoon, they have yet to be caught. You will also be fishing the reef edges on foot, targeting the huge Black Giant Trevally, Bohar Snapper and Maori Wrasse that have been encountered, providing thrills and a challenging alternative during the day.

 

In addition to lagoon fishing, you can explore the off-shore fishery (weather permitting) thanks to the purchase of a new fishing skiff in 2016. This will open up a huge range of Bluewater fly-fishing opportunities for a range of prolific pelagic species.
