Christmas Island Fly Fishing Trips

A Bonefishing Paradise in the Pacific Ocean

The widely scattered nation of Kiribati, pronounced “Kir-ee-bahs,” located in the Pacific Ocean along the edges of the Equator, includes the Gilbert, Phoenix and Line island groups. The waters surrounding Kiribati were an important battlefield during World War II, and several of the islands were ground zero for nuclear testing in the 1950s. The isolated location of the Kiribati islands prevents tourism from flourishing and becoming a major business, even though the weather is consistently warm and the shallow water flats are teeming with bonefish, trevally, triggerfish, and numerous other game fish. It is important to note that Christmas Island is definitely not another Tahiti or Hawaii where you can go to relax and have nothing to worry about. It has few visitors, and they have to be prepared to “rough it.” That said, there aren’t many countries where the people are friendlier.
