Hosted Trips to Ikari House on Christmas Island

"The World's Finest Wade Fishing for Bonefish"


Ikari House Trip Dates

Fiji Airways is hopefully going to begin flying again May of 2022 after (2) years of being locked down and anglers locked out. It is a premier saltwater wade fishing destination offering incredible Bonefish opportunities with shots at Giant Trevally, Bluefin Trevally, Golden Trevally, Triggerfish, and more. Anglers interested in off-shore fishing can spend a day in the boat targeting Wahoo, Tuna, Marlin, Sailfish, Skipjack, and more.

A Special Destination

The great Lefty Kreh has described Christmas Island as "the best Bonefish fishing on the planet..." Come decide for yourself. This is one of the most famous fly fishing destinations in the world and this is your chance to sign up for this trip with a host that is going to travel alongside you for the entire week.  

Anglers will spend most of their time stalking Bonefish, with Giant Trevally or "GT's" being the trophy species. GT's are amazing fish, and catching a fast cruiser on the open flats that is spotted and sight cast to is a very special catch. You will never forget it.  

On our trips we don't use chum to lure the fish in close. We work hard and try to catch these brutes "fair chase". Catch numbers of these beasts are not high and we want to keep expectations realistic for every angler that comes along. All anglers will get shots at big GT's while wading the flats. Not everyone will get one however... but when you do it's a big party that night! We celebrate the victories together.

"Stalking the flats on Christmas Island is the closest thing to hunting I've found with a fly rod in hand."

The Red's Hosted Experience

A Red's team member will travel with you and help make your experience the most efficient, rewarding, and best adventure we can. We're there to aid the lodge in coordinating ground transfers, assigning guides, meeting angler expectations, and helping problem solve should any challenges arise. Your host will mentor as necessary, work with the lodge's head guide to coordinate guide pairings, and make group wide decisions that best serve all Red's customers.  

Christmas Island is located about 3.5 hours flight south of Honolulu, about 3.5 degrees north of the equator. This is a long ways from anywhere and this makes it a big trip! Having a Red's host along for the ride helps insure that you can get advice throughout the trip and a spokesman is working on your behalf to help insure that you are safe, informed, and have a productive experience. Let our team help you plan the trip of a lifetime to Christmas Island.
