Christmas Island remains one of the best destinations in the world for both
beginning and advanced saltwater anglers alike. The reasons for this are
many. First, the island’s vast hard sand flats enable anglers to wade fish
all day in relative solitude. Second, the flats hold great numbers of
bonefish that cruise in shallow water, providing anglers with constant
opportunities or “shots” throughout their visit. Lastly, but certainly not
the least, the atoll’s proximity to the equator (less than 200 miles) has
blessed Christmas Island with consistently good weather, which enables a
quality fishing experience year round. While the majority of the island’s
bonefish average two to four pounds, fish in the five to eight pound class
are always a real possibility, as are several species of trevally.
The Guides at Christmas Island Outfitters have
been handpicked for their overall level of
experience and skill, calmness under pressure,
and instructional abilities.
Christmas Island Outfitters, head guide is Peter Kairaio. Peter is recognized as one of the island’s top guides. He is joined by a small group of hand-picked professionals who are amongst the island's most skilled and personable fly fishing guides. All have excellent eyes for spotting fish, calm temperaments under the pressure of sight fishing, and are skilled instructors. By design, Christmas Island Outfitters has limited its
fishing program to no more than twelve anglers per week. As a result, the lodge boasts a highly flexible flats fishing program, that can take full advantage of varying tides and fishing conditions. Each evening, Peter will lead a discussion on the program for the following day’s fishing based on the conditions at hand. It is likely that your departure time from the lodge will vary each morning, according to the tides and where you will be fishing.
Transportation to and from the vast flats of Christmas Island is via truck and outrigger. Both are equipped with bench seats, canopies, and rod holders. Each
day anglers will reach the fishing flats by truck or by outrigger.
Accommodations and Meals:
Christmas Island Outfitters, is a small operation taking a maximum of twelve anglers per week. The lodge is located halfway between the airport and London on a secluded section of beach. Accommodations consist of three split level buildings, each with four separate units. Each room is configured to house two anglers and have a private bathroom. Rooms are very simple, relatively rustic, but kept clean and features ample space for your gear.
Top floor rooms look out at the vast Pacific Ocean with fantastic ocean breezes that fill your room. Air conditioning is not required to keep anglers comfortable, but all units do have A/C. Your room will be cleaned and restocked with soda, water, and beer every day during your stay. Each unit is equipped with screened windows, fans, a small refrigerator, and simple plastic table and chairs. Meals are a very basic and regularly comprised
of fresh seafood (snapper, tuna & wahoo, lobster, mantis shrimp), chicken, pork, rice, pasta, and sometimes steak. Fresh vegetables and fruit are very hard to keep in supply.
There is nothing fancy or luxurious about Christmas Island. Accommodations are very simple and provide a clean, comfortable space to lay your head at night. As you drift off to a restorative sleep each night, you'll listen to the sound of waves crashing on the reef and dream of the next greedy bonefish or cruising trevally to attack your fly. Anglers should think of the facility as a "fish camp" built for one purpose, to provide a functional base camp by which to explore some of the most productive, beautiful and remote flats found anywhere in the world.
