US fly rod brand Thomas & Thomas has become the exclusive supplier of Exocett saltwater fly rods to the Alphonse Fishing Company in the Seychelles.
The high-performance Exocett is one of several new rod ranges launched by the Greenfield, Massachusetts company at ICAST 2016 and is now available to the market.
Alphonse is the largest fly fishing organisation in the Seychelles and Indian Ocean, and the premier outfitter for Alphonse Island, St Francois Atoll, Cosmoledo Atoll, Astove Atoll and Poive Atoll.
“The Seychelle archipelago has the reputation as one of the most demanding fisheries on the planet and is the ideal proving ground for our new saltwater line-up,” says Thomas & Thomas.
“An incredible variety of inshore and offshore species put the Exocett to test during its development.”
Thomas & Thomas was established in 1969 and makes all it rods and components in the US. The company was acquired by CNS Outdoor Technologies in July 2014.
