Republic of Kiribati >> Line Islands >> Christmas Island
Fishing and Species
The year-round wade fishing for bonefish on Christmas Island has brought more anglers into destination flats fishing than any other location in the world. The boats are used for transport only, with all flats fishing done by wading. The wade fishing for Giant Trevally is at the top of my list for angling excitement and challenge. You can pursue the fishing how you want, no one will make you hunt GT's. In addition, the offshore fishing from the outriggers is a lot of fun, and you may want up to a 16 wt for yellow fin tuna up to 100 lbs+! All of the above and more can be done in a week, and maybe even in a day.

The Villages opened in June of 2006. They are located on the lagoon side, about a mile down the beach from London. It possible to walk down the beach and hook a bonefish.

There are six air-conditioned bungalows, each with two twin beds, comfortably accommodating up to twelve anglers at a time. Each has an en suite bathroom with hot and cold running water, a fully stocked bar fridge and ample storage for your clothing and gear. There's also your own verandah with seating and rod racks to store your rods at the end of the day's fishing. Whether you are a single angler or have a group of friends you like to fish with, I think you will enjoy the fishing and the hospitality of The Villages.

A “maneaba”, a local name for the anglers’ gathering center, lies in the heart of the complex, featuring a comfortable lounge, bar and dining area, all with a charming island atmosphere. Local fish, meats and fowl are prepared by an experienced island chef and served by his trained staff.

Each of the guides has his own special flies and his favorite flat. Given the right tide, they will take you there. The Villages is only a short 5 to 20-minute skiff ride from several large, shallow, easily waded flats that are favorites of feeding bones, some in double-digit sizes.
