When i was on Socotra i saw some tourists from South Africa and we had chatted for a while, they told me that they came to Socotra to do fishing tour. The said Socotra the best place to practice wild fishing where you can catch monster fishes such as GT and so on.

Hi to all anglers looking for the best fishing experience of their lifes!

Socotra will be ideal destination for popping, vertical jigging, light spinning, fly fishing...

The best time for GT expedition is just starting now, October.

Some local agencies are specialized in organisation of this trip and will recruit the most skilled captains for your catch.

Fishing days can be organized as daily outdoor trips from the capital Hadibo if you want to spend the overnights in hotels or as full deep contact with nature, in basic campsites in wild areas near the best fishing destination

Somali pirates are no more there since sept 2013, and the change in the politics in Yemen, I can garantee you that you are 100% safe there, many foreigners are there on regular basis, including us. I guess i never felt so secured like in i was in socotra, you can't even see police on the island, safe place, and wonderful people.

Yes, absolutely Socotra is a safe destination and it is one of the best places for fishing. Ras Irisal is the best spot for GT fishing though shuab aslo a good one. Those are the only two places for fishing in socotra island while there are spots on the other small islands of the archipelago. However, according to my fishing experience on Socotra (have been to Socotra for more than 4 times so far) and since Ras Irisal and Shuab spots are very small and got exploited by many anglers, I recommend fishing on the other islands of Socotra Archipelago; AbdulKuri, Samha and Darsah.

Hi Paul, you say that you visit Socotra frequently - can you tell me whether the flights from UAE (Sharjah) directly to Socotra run regularly and whether there is a Wednesday & Saturday flight, BOTH ways? I want to go to Socotra in February / March for diving & hiking, and want to know if I can avoid Sana'a. Also, is spearfishing allowed (and are there spearfishers there) and where would be the best such fishing spots? Many thanks, Philippe
