This trip is not just for the seasoned angler, but for those looking to explore one of the more remote places in the world and find out what salt water fly fishing is all about. The thought that fly fishing may have been designed with Bonefish in mind, CXI has one of the healthiest populations in the world, so no need to be intimidated going here.

One of the benefits of traveling to CXI is that you get to enjoy a couple of days in Hawaii, home to some of the biggest bonefish in the world. These fish are varsity level when it comes to intelligence, so you have to bring your A game. For our Colorado based clients, it can be quite a jump to go from casting 4wt rods to an 8wt, and if you’re chasing GT’s, consider trying to get a 12wt rod/broom stick to bend without hauling your line. Not easy. I highly recommend taking a day or two in Hawaii to train your eyes for seeing fish, as well as work on your casting.
Once you get to CXI, all of your meals, lodging and ground transportation are included. We work with Christmas Island Outfitters and stay at Crystal Beach. You will have the best and most friendly guides on the island working with you as you depart by truck or catamaran for the day. Sight fishing is the name of the game here as shallow water and tailing fish make CXI so special. Bonefish in the 2 to 4 pound class are abundant. The population keeps getting healthier since locals are not being able to keep as many bones, so it makes for an ever increasing 5 to 10 pound possibility. Click the link below for more details.
Get yourself to Hawaii at least 24 hours before your flight to CXI, because there is only one flight a week and you don’t want to miss it. We will be flying Fiji Air to CXI which will be arranged through a travel agency.
Typical Daily Schedule:
7:00AM: Depart for flats
8:00AM – 4:30PM: Fishing
5:30PM: Back at the lodge
