A Must for Permit

When most people think of a permit fly rod, they might think of a nine weight...at least that's what I was thinking. I was headed on a trip with some of my buddies and we were ONLY going permit fishing and my boys fish hard. I was ready for a new fly rod for the trip. I talked to lots of shops and heard all sorts of ideas. Then I called Leland and they said they had a permit rod to recommend. It was called "Permit." They had my attention. Bottom line is that I bought it with the agreement that if I didn't like casting it at home, I could send it back for a full refund. Sounded like I couldn't lose. Rather than just cast it with a leader, I tied on a true permit fly...a heavy crab pattern and then cast it. No joke, this #10 fly rod turned over and presented my clunky crab pattern like a dry fly. Done, done, done. Found my favorite permit fly rod. On my trip, I let my boys try the Leland rod and they all agreed I made the right decision.
It's simple...if you're going permit fishing, get this rod.
