Got my first permit last week. Unreal experience, he/she ended up towing me over 1000ft, and fish was landed in about 15mins. A hell of a fish for a 7wt. Released healthy as heck, didn't really take any reviving. I put about as much pressure as I thought I could apply safely during the fight. Caught on a NFC 7wt gamma beta I built, on a strong arm merkin I tied.

Congrats! Catching one on a fly you tied is about as good as it gets. The first time I went Permit fishing I tied about a dozen of every Permit fly I could find on YouTube. Got on the boat the first day and the guides looked through my box and sent me back in the lodge to buy some of theirs :ROFLMAO:. Every time I go I come home and tie some new ones with things I learned on previous trips. This past trip in December my son and I caught five between us, and fed three others and all were on ******** Crabs I tied myself.

thanks man! Yeah I agree.. they are tough, but that’s part of what made that fish so special! I caught a nice bone before that but it might as well have been a catfish. After I landed the perm.. I barely remembered it!

Yesterday I had family in town with the goal of getting their first red on fly.
Mission accomplished with the final tally over 30 fish.
One of those days where everything just seemed to come together perfect despite wind and cloud cover.

laid out a cast to a feeding grass carp led it by about 15ft, let the fly get settled in a good place to give it a lil wiggle when the carp got close, carp is about 7-10ft away, I feel a strike so I set, was kinda confused. This girl drug me straight to the bottom, then gave me a few jumps. Fun lil post freeze pond session, was not expecting a bucketmouth with those kind of temps.

Did my monthly trip to the Louisiana marsh yesterday. Temp was 34 degrees when we launched. By 11:30 the sun started to heat the mud up and the fish came alive. Caught 4 black drum and 3 reds with only one redfish under 30." My buddy caught his biggest red on fly at 36" and his biggest black ugly at 40"
