RE:Christmas Island Fishing Trip

Most effective flies were in smaller sizes - #6s and #8s. Variations on the crazy charley and gotcha theme in different colors/shades and weights. Yellow/gold and white/orange produced in the past. A quick look through any of the catalogues will show a number of so called Christmas Island specials. I would definitely take along fly tying gear and be prepared to experiment.

Flies for Trevally should include big deceivers and poppers. They're generally not too fussy. There's some useful info at the following site. This is the operation we're going with.
