Permit Party


I watched them for at least an hour... probably longer. Dozens of permit. Schooling, swimming back and forth, arrogantly cruising, snubbing their noses at my offering.

Granted I was with Brian Hodges of thisisfly.com staring through four inches of glass waving what was left of my breakfast trying to convince thirty pound permit to come just a bit closer. They were not having it. That's what permit do - ignore you.

This was as close as I've ever been to landing a permit. Not very, I'm afraid.

I'm all for Deeter going deep in the name of permit research (see previous post). Probably one of, if not the most sought after fish on a fly.

Deeter if you take me up on this objective I wish you luck. Start now and we might see you again in 2010. Do me a favor if you will... While your down there studying those wily fish, give ole' mr. permit the big middle finger from me and ask him why he refuses to eat my fly.

I agree with the above statements, there are not many fish out there that even a baby is considered a trophy, but oh the sweetness when it all comes together and you hear the words FISH ON!!!!.

Much respect to Mr. Permit! but he still gets the finger from me too!

I caught a baby permit my first trip for them a 5lb trophy, I am a very lucky guy, Mexico is truly the place to go there are permit everywhere. I had over 50 shots in a couple of days. The ignoring factor can kill you. You got to love the hunt.
