“This was an amazing experience traveling half way around the world chasing the elusive Permit on the fly. I’ve always heard stories from all my clients who fished for these Permit that are hard fish to catch. And boy were they correct!
This trip took me from Hawaii to California to Texas to Belize City. Once in Belize City I took a smaller charter plane to the most southern city in Belize, Punta Gorda, “The Permit Capital of the World.” I had a great time fishing six full days with Captain Yogi from the Garbutt’s Fishing Lodge. Hours and hours on the bow of the boat for a two second window of opportunity to cast at these ghost like fish is all worth it when all the stars aline, getting to witness a giant Permit totally attack your sinking crab pattern. Unreal experience!
Belize is one of the most beautiful places, it’s full of different islands and lagoons. I couldn’t think of a better place to catch my very first Permit. Thank you Yogi!”
