Merry Christmas, Fishing Two Days Ago

Merry Christmas! Now that’s out of the way, I can get on to more important things. Primarily, fishing–which (until a small cold front rolled through yesterday) has been fantastic. Two days ago I went out for a morning seek with John O’Hearn and John Benvenuto. John B. and I had planned to permit fish around…

Fishing last few days

Yesterday, and two days prior, I was invited by Ted Margo to fish with John O’Hearn. Our target was primarily permit, though we looked for bonefish at the beginning of the first day. Here’s how it all went down. Day One (Tuesday, 23 September) We left in conditions that could be easily described as sub-optimal,…

Fishing on Tuesday with Simon

On Tuesday I fished with Captain Simon Becker. We were joined by Kathryn Vallilee. We started on some nearby areas, hoping to find some permit to throw a fly at. Kat had a shot at a single, though for the first hour or so the permit fishing was slow. Following this, we relocated to an…
