It wasn't too long ago that the idea of fly-fishing for permit would raise eyebrows. Then again, for some fly-fishers, raising eyebrows is the whole point. Jack Samson has been saltwater fly-fishing for most of his career, and by now he might just be the most famous permit angler around. Permit on a Fly is the result of years spent perfecting a very difficult craft. It's hard enough to find permit, as they tail about on the saltwater flats rooting for crabs; then you have to execute a perfect cast with a perfect fly. And if you're masterful enough to induce a take... well, hang on! Sampson relates his years of chasing these magnificent game fish around exotic tropical locales, providing all of us hopeful permit anglers with some good instruction along the way.From Publishers Weekly:
The Atlantic permit (Trachinotus falcatus), a member of the pompano family, spends part of each day in deep water; during the incoming tide, it moves up on the flats to feed on small crabs. A permit can weigh as much as 50 pounds. Easily spooked, the wary creature is the ultimate challenge to fly fishermen. Samson, former managing editor of Field & Stream and author of Saltwater Fly Fishing, takes us from the Bahamas and the Florida Keys to Belize, Honduras and the Yucatan peninsula in search of this elusive fish. He gives here an engaging account of his adventures in locating, hooking and landing a permit on a fly?then releasing it. Colorful guides and fellow anglers add to the story. Samson offers advice on tackle and technique; an appendix gives information on tying flies for permit. A treat for anglers. Illustrations.
