Christmas Island, Republic of Kiribati

Fish On!

Anglers have been fly fishing on Christmas Island for over 30 years. It is the best wade fishing for bonefish in the world. The equatorial location and small tide shifts make this the only year-round tropical saltwater fishery.

*For years anglers have been chasing the “other species like Giant, Bluefin and Golden Trevally, Triggerfish, Sweet Lips and Milkfish, with each different one presenting its own unique challenge. It can take hours, days, and even weeks to understand a new species—how they feed, where they live and their fickle (psychic!) unpredictability. Fishing for and catching new species is a kick in the ass!

**Tim Pask took these photos earlier this year during a two-week stay at Ikari House. Their guides, boats, food and hospitality are the best on the island.

The Gorge Fly Shop is planning a hosted trip to Christmas Island in 2015. Please let us know if you are interested whether it is your first trip or returning to visit old friends.

A face you could kiss your mother with.

*This is not taking for granted the prolific bonefishing, as larger bones are a challenge anywhere.
