A note from Captain James Johnson:
“It wasn’t long after I stepped up onto the bow when we spotted a big, single permit. He was swimming fast, paralleling us but we decided to try go after him and see if he would slow down to feed enough for me to get a shot.
My wife @sageIndendi was poling her heart out to keep up when we saw the single join a small school of four permit. The school slowed down and began making their way in tighter to shore. That gave us this opportunity to cut them off enough to get a long crossing shot. One strip and the largest lead fish (the first fish we spotted) jumped on the fly. Fifteen minutes later, we were holding our best permit of the year… so far!”
