Trip Information

AFF HOSTED TRIP August 14-21, 2019

CXI is the largest coral atoll in the world. Known for its abundance of bonefish, it also hosts a myriad of other saltwater species. Giant Trevally, Trigger fish, Milkfish, Golden Trevally and Blue Fin Trevally, all roam the flats inside and outside the lagoon. Trigger fish are a particularly appealing target, and we believe Christmas Island is one of the best Trigger fish fisheries you can find.

Hosted by Mickey Finn from Aussie Fly Fisher, in collaboration with Ikari House Lodge, we hope you can join us for this amazing trip.

General Program

The trip offers seven days of fly fishing in which each day, the group is split into teams of four. Each boat of four anglers will head out with two guides and a boat operator. Depending on what species you want to focus on, the boats will drop each pair and their guide in different locations around the lagoon. You’ll be transported throughout the day to keep the fishing fresh. We recommend you spend at least one day chasing milkfish on the outside of the lagoon, and another day at the Korean Wreck. The wreck, a famous region on the outside of the lagoon, offers a change in scenery and, with fish entering the shallows from the deep reef edge, opportunities for a wide variety of fish.
