CHRISTMAS ISLAND

Location

Located 1,200 miles south of Hawaii and 200 miles north of the Equator in the Republic of Kiribati (pronounced Kiribas), Christmas Island is the world's largest coral atoll. The island is very flat with hundreds of square miles of pristine flats surrounding the island.

The Fishing

Whether you are an experienced saltwater angler returning for your tenth trip or a novice keen on honing your flats fishing skills, we invite you to join us for the finest and most intimate angling experience anywhere. Amidst the vast inventory of the world's saltwater destinations, Christmas Island is an unique natural masterpiece that magically, as if designed by committee, combines all the elements critical to fly-fishing success: endless hard sand flats, remarkable numbers of cruising bonefish and trevally, and consistent year round weather await all who visit this remarkable atoll.

Each day anglers will depart via truck or catamaran for the day's fishing. While standard packages include one guide for every two anglers, one on one guiding is also available. Virtually all fishing will be done while wading and entails sight casting to visible fish in shallow water. Christmas Island's plentiful bonefish average 2 to 4 pounds with each week presenting numerous opportunities at larger specimens in the 5 to 10 pound class.

For anglers keen on the challenge of trevally, (giant, golden, blue fin, and striped) the guides at Christmas Island are highly skilled and passionate in their pursuit. While a somewhat higher stakes game than bonefishing, the results are often spectacular!
