One of the finest saltwater fly fishing destinations in the world for a range of species, Christmas Island or Kiritimati provides year-round opportunities and is very popular amongst beginner to advanced Fly fishermen from Australia and New Zealand looking to escape the winter months.
Located in the Republic of Kiribati, between Hawaii and Fiji, Christmas Island or CXI as it is affectionately known is 100 miles north of the equator and the largest atoll in the world. Full of bonefish, triggerfish and a range of trevally species including GT’s, the beauty of the location lies with its remote setting, huge flats system and the sheer number of fish to cast to each day.
The Villages provides one to one guiding with experienced guides from the comfort of shaded traditional outrigger boats which provide an extremely smooth and comfortable ride to the flats daily. The community-run lodge provides adequate but basic accommodation on the lagoon, with the boats waiting for you on your private beach each morning, while the communal Maneeba and bar area provides a great setting to relax and relive the days fishing at the end of the day.
Fly Odyssey Australia hosts a number of group trips to CXI every year, which is the perfect environment to travel with a like-minded group of anglers and enjoy the comradery group travel provides. Our hosted trips also provide you with a great learning environment both on and off the water and ensure that you are both well prepared and taken care of while there.
