Default Christmas Island!!!

Just paid my deposit for a trip to Christmas Island for Bones & GTs

Nov 13 - 21.. Fly to Honolulu and overnite then onto Christmas Island!!

Need 8wt, 10wt and 12 wt setups and the outfitter sent me samples of flies to tie..

This will be my first "Big Time" saltwater excursion - something tells me it wil not be my last!!!!!

You should practice for a day or two here in Honolulu on some of our big Bonefish.

Be sure to bring some Milkfish flies! What lodge you staying at? I'm heading down 4/25/17. PM if you have any questions on gear, flies etc.
