Until recently, North Africa, and especially the coast of Sudan has never been considered a viable fishing destination.
Political unrest in neighboring Southern Sudan has cast an image that has been badly portrayed and dampened the potential for Sudanese tourism. Along the Red Sea coast of Sudan there are countless islands and wide expanses of shallow water flats. These offer the adventurous fly angler a treasure chest of fly fishing opportunities. In 2013, Tourette Fishing began the long process of exploring as much of the coast as possible in order to evaluate the fly fishing potential.
It didn’t take long to see the massive potential, as the flats were home to incredible numbers of triggerfish, bluefin, GTs, bohar as well as shots at bonefish and permit.
Despite the bad reputation of the country, Sudan is a very inviting, friendly, and safe place to travel, and for years has been the centre for an exploding diving industry. In the future there is no doubt that the Nubian flats of the Red Sea will become a well recognized flats destination as fly fisherman experience the magic of the Sudan coast.
