Chuck Wilkerson (Naples, Fl) took his son-in-law Andrew Peebles (London, England) on a 1/2 day fly-fishing trip. Unfortunately, the snook fishing was very slow in the morning, but Chuck did manage one small snook in Bob Cat Bay. Andrew handled the fly rod very well and managed to catch quite a few fish on the flats. We saw one large tarpon, but were not even close to getting a shot at it.
Andrew, with your skill in casting, you should easily get your fly in front of the lead fish in the permit schools. If you think that your shoulder would hold up (I am convinced it will!!), next time you are in town, we should take the whole day and fly fish the river mouths in the morning and chase the permit later in the day. They are something special on fly ... bring lots of backing!!!!
