Belize Fly Fishing Lodge Report: January 5th 2009
We had a special group of guys coming down looking to celebrate the New Year on the water. Tom and Simon are repeat "tarpon junkies" looking to finally tie into some Permit. Well, Tom did not waste any time... on his second morning with the sun just coming up we spotted a single permit tailing in slick calm conditions. He made two bad presentations, one directly over the fish, but did not spook. The third was the charm as the crab plopped right on the fishes nose. The telltail forked tail came out of the water, and Tom strip set like a Tarpon pro. A long battle with the 9 weight was on, but our guide boated and released this nice 27 pound Belizean Permit for Tom. Nice first Permit, and great teamwork guys..

They duo mixed in some "schoolie" Tarpon and loads of tailing bonefish and the week was a huge success... Happy New year guys!
