The team are in the Seychelles, just off the world renowned fishing hot spot, Alphonse Island and Inside Angling host, Craig Thomassen has barely got his fly line out amongst the teasers before a Sailfish has come to play. This one doesn't stick but Sailfish aren't the only pelagic species around and Craig soon has the lighting fast, powerful Wahoo to contend with. These smash and grab merchants are rarely caught on fly gear but the waters are rich with them here and the teasers soon pull the Wahoo in. After landing a couple on the fly rod, Craig switches to a light spin rod and a stick bait with almost immediate effect. Hooking into the sailfish is proving more of a struggle though, but Craig perseveres and is rewarded with an epic fight on his 3rd day in Alphonse Island.
