FLY FISHING IN THE MALDIVES
HEWES REDFISHER 18
Fishing off one of the best back country and flat water skiffs ever made, the ‘Hewes Redfisher 18’ provides the ultimate in range, speed and ride, opening up the whole atoll to explore and fish untouched waters.
Plenty of storage space and a live catch well enables the angler to target a multitude of species while on either a morning or full day, fishing the flats, lagoons or patch reefs on offer.
We currently have 3 Redfisher 18 skiffs, to allow for group bookings or hosted trips, so can fish up to 6 rods/day.
Light tackle, fly & jig – we have some of the best rental equipment available, ensuring time on the water is as productive as possible.
