Oman's coastline is formed up of sprawling sandy beaches, secluded rocky bays and sheer jagged cliffs that plunge dramatically into the ocean. With the Gulf of Oman in the north and the Arabian Sea in the south (a region of the north Indian ocean) Oman's landscape is truly diverse.
After extensive exploration of the entire coastline we founded Arabian Fly Sport Fishing to cater for the international fishing market. We offer the chance to fish this beautiful and remote destination in first class comfort with experienced fishing guides.
The Sultanate of Oman is situated on the south eastern side of the Arabian peninsula. In the 19th Century it was a powerful empire, extending across to Iran and Pakistan and all the way south to Zanzibar, competing with Portugal and Britain for influence in the Persian Gulf and Indian Ocean. In the 20th century the Sultanate came under the influence of the United Kingdom. Historically, Muscat (modern day capital of Oman) was the principal trading port of the Persian Gulf region and was also among the most important trading ports in the Indian Ocean.
Relatively hard to access, until the 1970s when Sultan Qaboos Bin Said came in to power, he brought economic reform and modernisation to the country opening it up to the rest of the world.
Oman’s economy is reliant on its oil resources and petroleum products which have helped to rapidly develop the country. Both agriculture and fishing are important sources of incomes, and more recently a fast growing tourism sector. Oman's attractions include a largely untouched coastline, rugged mountain ranges, beautiful riverbeds or Wadi’s as they are referred to and vast sand dune filled deserts. There are also many towns steeped in rich history, with their forts, palaces and walled cities. It is truly a mystical and untouched destination with the most welcoming local people you could ever wish to meet.
