Permit Fly Fishing Destinations
For many, catching a permit on a fly rod sits at the top echelon of saltwater fly fishing. Permit are notoriously difficult to catch for many reasons.

In fact, with eyes the size of golf balls, permit have the some of the most refined vision in the fish world. Plus, when a fish can smell sunscreen on your fly, like a permit can, you know you are in for a battle of wits! But that's just the beginning, you have to be able to see them first - with an almost undetectable reflective skin, essentially everything disappears on the flats other than their famous black-forked tail.
