Well many of my fishing friends have touted Christmas Island over the years, sitting in the middle of the Pacific Ocean nearly 1200 miles from Hawaii not only for the great fishing opportunities but for the exotic beauty of this Polynesian atoll. Here is a little photo collage from some of my fly fishing buddies that all just returned a few weeks ago with big smiles. They had a great time and caught some fantastic species. Anytime you have shots at 80#+ GTs it doesn’t suck! I plan to go next November with a another group of fly fishing buddies and I can not wait. Hearing the stories of tackle busting GTs, wahoo, tuna and big bonefish on the edges of deep flats has gotten me crazy. Now it’s getting my game plan in order and preparing my tackle for next years big adventure. I feel like I need to read Sun Tzu’s The Art Of War!… LOL

    Okay, that is bordering on torture, Al. I live in the land of pine cones.

    Hey, I forgot to mention that some friends from our church have adopted a girl from China. She is missing an arm…don’t know why yet. We are giving “Lilly” our daughter’s kitchen play set. The adoptive mom told the congregation about the adoption in tears last Sunday.

  2. Hey Timm, sorry about the post, I know it is painful even in the land of palm trees. That is great news about your friends adopting that little girl, she is blessed to have parents like them!


    nice photos. I want to share some thoughts with you before they fade from my memory.
