The Kenyan coast has some fantastic blue-water fishing for both Sailfish & Marlin. Catching either of these fish on a fly is at the very limits of what is achievable on a fly rod. Picking the right time of year is essential but second only to that is having a knowledgeable skipper and a fishing crew who have experience of teasing Sailfish & Marlin up to a fly.

Manda Bay is an exclusive and exotic beach resort on the Kenyan coastline close to Lamu. A family run lodge it exudes the sort of charm that makes it extremely popular with honeymooners but with more than enough activities to keep all parties happy.
