The East Cape Flats are a vast stretch of sand flats sprawled along the East Cape York peninsular. Stretching some 160NM along the coast. This trip is aimed at the adventurous fly angler looking for the next best untouched fishery for saltwater fly fishing in the World. We have been exploring wadeable flats in this far northern stretch of reef over the last couple of years and are confident that this fishery will stand strong against some of the well know established destinations around the world today. The eastern Cape York peninsular is one of the most remote stretches of coastline with almost zero coastal inhabitants north of Cooktown all the way to the tip of Australia. Walking the east coast flats really has the feel that no other flat can offer.
We take groups of six anglers to walk these untouched flats in search for the ever-abundant species such as Permit, Blue Bastards, Chinaman, GT’s and amongst these primary suspects there is a list of other targets we will have the opportunity to cast. These trips are aimed at the angler who primarily wants to wade however there is boat/skiff fishing available.
We will have one local experienced fly guide per pair of anglers, and we will have the opportunity to fish multiple flats during your trip to ensure the best opportunity for you to stick that beast you have been looking for. We will have two 22ft skiffs avail-able to transport us to the flats where we will be fishing for the day.
At the end of the day we will return to our luxury mothership Savannah, an 80ft luxury Expedition vessel with three very comfortable staterooms. The views in the afternoon from the sundeck are priceless after a day’s fishing with a cold beverage and a great social lounge in the main salon. You will be greeted with canapés on return from your days fishing followed by a sit down three course meal to end the day.
