CHRISTMAS ISLAND FLY FISHING


Christmas Island, (Kiritimati), is the world's largest coral atoll. Christmas Island is fly fishing paradise for stalking bonefish located 1,200 miles due south of Hawaii.
If you like bonefishing and light-tackle action in a warm-weather climate, our experienced Christmas Island fishing guides will show you fishing fun like never before on Kiritimati, the tiny fishing jewel in the Pacific.
Christmas Island is one of the best bonefishing destinations in the world for both beginning and advanced saltwater fly fishing on practically endless flats with remarkable numbers of cruising bonefish and trevally. The flats are so vast that it's common to fish all day and never see another group of anglers! Christmas Island also offers great fishing opportunities for offshore fishing, catching tuna, wahoo, and billfish.

 

THE FISHING

Fly fishing Christmas Island is all by recommendation: the guide will either suggest shore or boat fishing. You can request either! The boat is a comfortable 30-foot "local" (with roof for sun protection) with a local boatman at the helm. There will be one guide available for every two fishermen. A personal guide can be arranged for a fee. Our fishing times are flexible, so if you want an extra early start, let your guide know the day before!

The food is good and ample: the evening meal will consist of mostly fish (NOT BONEFISH, but tuna, wahoo or sweetlip), with plenty of vegetables, etc. Meat is also served regularly: chicken, pork and beef are flown in from Hawaii... Lobster can be a special treat! Lunch is gourmet sandwiches, packed in the esky (with plenty of chilled bottled water), and breakfast is a large cooked western style meal.

Soft drinks and beer can be purchased at reasonable rates. For mixers, please let us know, and we will do our best to obtain these.

All the transport is by covered truck, with padded seats. At the end of the week's fishing, you will be transported back to the airport for your flight home.
