Mike and Ryan Hawks getting ready for another long day of patrolling the flats for Tailing Permit.
Mike with an epic permit. Topping off his Grand Slam day. As he hooked this fish another huge Permit popped up and started tailing right next to us. Never fails.
Noel Westby running to the next flat.

My first good Permit on a Crab fly i had tied when i was in Belize 4 years earlier and never got to fish. Fished all day and finally got a good shot in the last 20 minutes of light.
Ryan Hawks with a nice permit he got wading. We pulled up on a f lat first thing in the morning and a school of tails popped up. Ryan got out of the boat and stalked them down. Made a good shot and hooked up. We picked him up off the flat and chased the fish down into the deep water.
Conch for dinner. Picked em up as we fished.
Mike Casting to some tailing Bonefish.

Keep an eye out down the road for some footage of Mike's grand slam in SOULFISH 2.
