Permit for Permit

We opted to chase permit today, I've never caught one......and I still haven't, primarily because I'm hard header and wanted to catch my first on the fly. After about 2 hours of looking, we finally found them and were "in the meat" all day long, following several schools of at least 100 permit in each school. They did not want my fly offerings, but Anna found out from our guide Willey that they will readily eat a piece of conch. Over the side of the boat Anna goes with mask and snorkel. My fly opportunities were limited after that, getting my shots only when Anna was busy fighting a big permit or taking a break from several of her battles. They are cool fish. Internet service is a little weak here, but I'll try to post some pics later in the week.
