Just returned from 10 days in the sun at Cancun... Besides all the great food, warm temperatures, clean beaches, super hotels, numerous bars, and friendly locals, we went late afternoon flyfishing in the bay for tarpin and permit. My son Geoff managed to land three nice sized tarpin. We spotted a huge permit-- probably 20-25 lbs... Tried to attract but had on the wrong flies. Spot on sight casting into the mangroves with salt water tackle requires real talent... We probably had 10 strikes and landed three... the tarpin like to go aerial and once you get one to strike, then the thrill kicks in. I packed a 6 piece travel rod and salt water gear/flies... caught a number of fish right off the beach... when the tide was coming into shore. Will post some photos soon... Remember, next time wife wants to travel on vacation--- go someplace that she can have fun, and you can get some quality fishing in too! Tight lines!
