If you have ever had a chance to fish for permit; once you’ve returned home, you will have probably spent many a night dreaming of casting to these tailing fish in the flats of some tropical destination. 
Successful Permit fishing is very dependent on weather conditions with calm clear water being the most desirable, this usually occurs between April and September.
Permit love to root around the shallow flats for crabs and other crustaceans and are very wary of approaching fishermen, so the excitement of sneaking up on these saltwater rockets and making a perfect presentation without spooking them, can make your heart pound. 
For some, Permit are considered the “Holy Grail” of saltwater fly fishing.
