Kiribati became independent from the United Kingdom in 1979. It is a member of the Commonwealth of Nations, the IMF and the World Bank, and became a full member of the United Nations in 1999.
Kiribati nation includes an island known as Christmas Island (Kiritimati) in the Line Islands, which is the world's largest atoll. The name is also claimed by an Indian Ocean island that is a dependency of Australia - so do not be confused between the two... I hope that I haven't got it wrong in the links below!

2009 [April] - Christmas Island Fishing Reporthttp://flywaternews.wordpress.com/2009/08/03/christmas-island-fishing-report-2009
On Monday, April 9, Jerry , Charlie met Bob DeRosier, Chris and Dave at Phoenix International Airport for the start of a 10 day trip that would take us to Christmas Island. The trip would include 2 days to get there, 6 days of fly fishing and 2 days to get home. Why would a fly fisherman spend 2 days flying to this Island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean? There are only two things and they would be Bonefish, or should I say BIG Bonefish and Trevally...

Kiritimati (Christmas) Island FishingArticle
Kiritimati (Christmas) Island is a fisherman’s paradise. Situated 1,200km South of Honolulu in the Central Pacific, just north of equator, Kiritimati is the largest coral atoll on the planet where the sea and sky naturally decorate a 250 square miles of white sand, iridescent aqua lagoons, coconut palms and endless flats. This fishing destination is spectacular because it combines all the elements critical to fly-fishing success. Consistent year-round weather, endless hard sand flats, and magnificent numbers of cruising Bonefish and Trevally- making it ideal for the serious angler. What makes the fishing so special and extraordinary is the natural and raw power of the bonefish - it can fight so hard with so much strength that it makes the anglers work twice as hard. The knowledge of local guides always produces a big difference in fishing as they know their own flats, tides, reefs, waters, and fish. Their eagle eyes can spot the fish in any kind of weather condition...
