When I am on the water, there is nothing greater than watching a tarpon roll, a permit flash, or a bonefish tail. Every interaction with these amazing creatures is a gift from the fish gods. 

Wednesday, May 2nd was a day I will never forget. Although I received no less than 15 rejections from permit, it was one of the best days of fishing in my life. I got to spend my day watching unicorns in the wild and it was fantastic. Every mistake I made was a new opportunity to learn. 

Then, on my second cast the next morning, I got an eat.

As you are no doubt aware, the permit code is a tough one to crack but I am enjoying the ride.

Fortunately, the flats of Chetumal Bay also have an abundance of healthy bones.

...and the neighboring lagoons and cenotes have healthy populations of juvenile tarpon.

I could go on and on about how much I love Mahahual and Xcalak, but here are some more photos.

It was so damned hard getting on the plane and saying goodbye to this amazing place - but I will be back soon.

Thank you Nick, Steve and Nacho for an amazing week.
