I’m at that point…

I leave for Christmas Island in two days. I’m at that point where I have almost everything together for the trip and I’m sure I’m forgetting something, but I don’t know what that thing is.

I have… two eight weights, two ten weights, a twelve… three 8 wt. reels, three reels for the 10, one for the 12. I have leader material and tippet and about 300-500 flies, depending on how you count them. I have my boots and socks and pants and shirts and sun screen and body glide (for that chaffing you can get on the inner thighs). I have cameras and chargers and plugs and… the list goes on and on.

So… what is the one thing I’m forgetting??????

We shall see, and soon.

  1. xtra fly lines? the coral can be brutal and the GT’s don’t stop.

  2. The extra lines are basically on the back up reels.

  3. Energy bars

  4. I second Jon Conner’s input. The food on Christmas Island is not great. They are a long way from just about anything fresh except fish and coconut. Take lots of snacks. I would have killed for a Pop-Tart.
