Ready for Saltwater - Part 5: Permit/Triggerfish
Fly Fishing in tropical saltwater is getting more and more popular! For many fly fishers Permit are the 'Holy Grail'. Their behavior is unpredictable, they are shy and their eyes are ultra sharp. This is why these fish are a big challenge, even though they show themselves at the surface while feeding on shrimps and crabs. They are fished on sight only - similar to Triggerfish which are great sportfish too in both the Caribbean and the Indian Ocean.
