A how-to and where-to guide for catching fly fishing's toughest fish!
Fishermen brag about the biggest trout. They talk about the spookiest bonefish. They speak in high excitement of the speed of a false albacore. But the permit has taunted more fisherman than all of these fish, and has maintained a reputation for being truly impossible to catch.
Whole clubs of frustrated permit pursuers have been created. Stories abound of fishermen who have fished for years before catching their first permit. Now Jack Samson, legendary editor of Field and Stream
for fifteen years, begins to turn the tide. Jack has pursued permit around the world and has gone further than any other writer in unlocking the mysteries of this fabled fish. Fly Fishing for Permit
is his attempt to provide a complete guide to all aspects of permit fishing.
You'll learn what kind of equipment you'll need. You'll get thorough instruction on how to use that equipment. You'll get detailed information with maps for fishing all
the famous permit areas of the world—Mexico's Ascension Bay, the Florida Keys, Belize, and many more. Finally, Samson has compiled an extensive selection of photos and tying recipes of the most effective flies—included the latest innovative patterns. Plus there's a bonus appendix of permit fishing stories from several of the most famous permit fishermen in the world including Gordie Hill, Winston Moore, and more. 16 full-color photographs and 92 black-and-white photographs
