The fact that virtually every fly angler in North America has heard of Christmas Island is far from coincidence. Amidst the vast inventory of the world’s saltwater destinations, Christmas Island is a unique and natural masterpiece that magically 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 unique atoll. Guides at Christmas Island Outfitters have been handpicked for their overall level of experience and skill, calmness under pressure, and instructional abilities. Each day anglers will depart via truck or catamaran for the day’s fishing. Virtually all fishing entails sight casting to visible fish while wading in shallow water.
Christmas Island is a strange and wondrous saltwater seascape that seems to have been infinitely blessed by the fishing gods. It is a vast Matrix-like network of endless hard sand flats, lagoons, channels and reefs spread out across the Earth’s largest raised coral atoll. The main lagoon harbors the world’s most expansive system of productive shallow water flats. Bonefish, trevally, trigger fish, sharks, snappers, puffers and milk fish patrol more than 100 named flats perfectly designed for wading fly anglers. Christmas Island is a veritable wonderland for the saltwater fly angler and Christmas Island Outfitters is there to make your dreams come true.
Links to more information on the trip
We have hosted trips several to Christmas Island now and have grown to appreciate this as a wonderful place to experience local culture, friendly guides and an amazing fishery.
Offering Giant Trevally, Bonefish, Triggerfish and many more species in the lagoon and bluewater there is endless fun to be had. This year, 2019, our group of 10 anglers was able to land 23 unique species with some truly trophy GTs. Plus the bluewater fishing was insane with lots of Tuna, Milkfish and Sweetlips boated each day.
Please take a look at this information and let me know if you have any questions or comments about joining us on our next trip. All of the pictures were taken by myself or guests of our previous trips.
I hope to hear from you and to figure out a way for you to join us this April.
