Located in the remote Coral Sea off the coast of Papua New Guinea lies huge coral reef systems, including some forgotten atolls that had previously never been fly fished before until Fly Odyssey Australia made the pioneering voyage aboard the Mothership K20 in 2019.
What we discovered were untouched fisheries, with pristine crystal clear water home to an impressive range of species including numerous Giant Trevally, Bluefin, Triggerfish, Napoleon, Jobfish and several species of Coral Trout. Dogtooth and Yellowfin Tuna are also available.
Walking the inshore sand-flats provided sight-cast GT’s in the shallows, drop-offs and coral structure, in addition large numbers of big Bluefin Trevally swimming around our feet that had never seen a fly. With prolific structure for Triggerfish, they were also present in good numbers while the inner lagoons were like aquariums, full of big Red Bass, Jobfish and Coral Trout.
We have scheduled limited visits to the Forgotten Atolls again late 2020 and early 2021 for advanced saltwater fly fishermen interested in experiencing some of the true untouched atolls left anywhere in the world. These Atoll’s are designated Fly only fisheries on a catch and release basis and limited to six anglers:
