The Grizzly Hackle Fly Shop group has just returned from a great trip to Christmas Island Outfitters. They were fortunate to experience some great weather and the fish really responded. Here are some highlights of the trip!
Angler Mike B. with a beautiful fly caught GT! Caught while stalking the flats and focusing on likely zones. Anglers that put in the time to stalk GT’s on the flats with a 12wt in hand are sometimes richly rewarded at Christmas Island. Congrats Mike on a great catch!
Angler Ben T. with a beautiful blue fin Trevally on the flats. This one was figured by guides to be pushing 20lbs!
Ben with Christmas Island’s version of a permit. Almost as elusive and often every bit as challenging to catch, this beautiful Golden Trevally came to hand while working the edges.
Angler Ben with a beautiful Christmas bonefish. Caught while blind casting with the 12wt in a deep blue hole. This enterprising bonefish ate a 6 inch long fly!
