Hosted Christmas Island Trip

Joel La Follette - Thursday, June 04, 2015
Spend 6 days fly fishing for bonefish and GT on the world's largest coral atoll! Nick Wheeler is excited to be hosting a trip to Christmas Island this spring and is looking for 6 to 12 anglers to join him on the pristine island flats. This is an amazing opportunity for beginning saltwater anglers and seasoned veterans alike. The trip will be hosted March 15th to 22nd 2016 to take advantage of optimal tides. 

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, trevalley, 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."

´┐╝Christmas Island’s plentiful bonefish average 2 to 4 pounds, though each week presents numerous opportunities for larger specimens in the 5 to 10 pound class. The guides at Christmas Island Outfitters are also among the atoll’s most skilled and passionate trevally hunters and love nothing more than to share with their guests the thrill of hooking these monsters. Excellent blue water fishing for tuna, wahoo, and trevally is also available. Catering to groups of eight to twelve anglers per week, accommodations at Christmas Island Outfitters consist of seven private bungalows that sleep two anglers each. Rooms are simple, clean and spacious and have private baths, fans, screened windows, and refrigerators. The common meeting area features a friendly bar and a casual dining area where fresh, simple meals are served in the morning and evening hours. Flexible by design to ensure quality fishing, the daily schedule and meal times at Christmas Island Outfitters often vary slightly in order to take advantage of the best tides and fishing conditions.
Whether you are an experienced saltwater angler or a novice keen on honing your flats fishing skills, Christmas Island Outfitters offers the finest and most intimate angling experience the island has to offer.
