Hello friends.  WBFC is pleased and excited to announce an upcoming hosted saltwater fly fishing adventure.  This coming May 2019, from the 21st to the 28th, Aron Larsen from WBFC will be hosting a fly fishing destanation trip to the island nation of Christmas Island for (6) six exciting full days of flats fishing.  The target species will be Bonefish, Giant Trevally, Trigger Fish and perhaps a few other incredible species.

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 with remarkable numbers of cruising Bonefish and Trevally.  The consistent year-round weather await all who visit this unique 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, Worley Bugger Fly Co and Flywater Travel is here to make your saltwater dreams come true.

Stefan Piccone @ Xmas Island 

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.

Fishing Program:
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.

Christmas Island Beaches 

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.
