Gerhard is the founder and CEO of FlyCastaway. His saltwater fishing and guiding have taken him to just about to every atoll and archipelago in the Indian Ocean. He has been instrumental in opening up many of the Indian Ocean’s world-class saltwater fisheries to the international angling fraternity, including Providence, St Brandon’s, Cosmoledo, Astove and Farquhar atolls. His knowledge and experience on Africa’s freshwater and coastal systems are also substantial, his experience with Tigerfish, Largemouth Yellowfish, Smallmouth, Yellowfish, and West Africa’s giant Tarpon placing him as a forerunner in these fields.

Join us on Thursday, July 12th at 6 p.m. as Gerhard discusses everything you want to know about fly fishing in the Seychelles!
