Anaa Atoll, located 350 Kilometres east of Tahiti is a dot in the Pacific, located in the Tuamotu Archipelago in French Polynesia. With a declining population and youth retention on the Island due to a lack of employment opportunities, Fly Odyssey has implemented a project to develop a community driven, sustainable fly fishing business on the back of several years of scientific research into the local bonefish and trevally populations.
