PERMIT

The permit is one of the toughest gamefish to capture on a fly rod. I will guide you to the best large permit fishing in the world. We will fish for permit from Biscayne Bay to Key West. My 17' Maverick HPX skiff is on a Continental Trailer and we are mobile, taking advantage of various weather conditions and hot fishing action, all up and down the Florida Keys. Wether you are fly or spin fishing, the Florida Keys holds the largest population of big permit in the world. Permit fishing in the Florida Keys and Key West is purely sight fishing at it's best. The Marquesas Keys just a 25 minute run from Key West offers the perfect getaway for the angler looking to distance himself from the populated islands, and fish an area for permit that has remained the same for decades. The Marquesas is home to tarpon and bonefish along with permit, making it the perfect spot to attempt a flats grand slam on fly. Back to the East, the Permit fishing is outstanding from Key West to the famous Content Keys. I launch from three main areas in the lower Keys to take advantage of changing weather and tide conditions. Key West, Sugarloaf Key and Bahia Honda are three of the main acess points to get to the lower Keys backcountry. Permit can try your patience, but the rewards are HUGE! Wether you are an accomplished angler or the fly angler seeking his first permit on fly, I will teach you the techniques necessary to fool these powerful and finicky fish of the flats. Some special crab flies are also an important part of the formula, and you don't need to worry about bringing any yourself. I have some of the crabbiest crab flies around, proven time and time again by some of the best permit anglers in the business. Permit are available on the Florida Keys and Key West flats most days between March and Novemberr.
