    Default Re: Christmas Island!!!

    I now have my 12wt setup!! That completes all the expensive equipment I needed to invest in LOL!

    I ended up with a great setup for an incredible price!! I'm not a huge Ebay person but it really paid off this time. I bought a brand new, never fished hatch 12Plus with a spare spool for $700.00 from a fly shop in Montana in May and just got a brand new Orivs Helios 2 12wt 4pc for $595.00 from a fly shop in Florida!

    The shop in Florida had actually sold there last one but had not taken down the ebay ad yet so when i did a buy it now, they had one dropped shipped from Orvis to me!!

    It casts like a dream - Life is good

    Sounds great! Get out and cast the 12wt quite a bit before you go.

    It's a different beast and you'll need to work on it. You don't want to have to be dialing it in when you're actually fishing.

    Regards,

    For those of you that have been to CXI - is there cell phone coverage on the island?

    I am going in May and look forward to your report and also your lessons learned, packing list, what you took that was a waste of space/weight, and what you didn't take but should have.

    Good luck and have a GREAT time.
