    Your guide is polling you along a white sandy flat. You are completely alert and looking for any sign of that v shaped tail! You spot one! A big one! The fish is happily eating about 60 feet out at 1 o’clock. You take a deep breath and begin casting your lead eyed crab with the wind blowing into you hard. Three quick false cast until you deliver the fly right on the money. Just as you begin to twitch the crab the tail shoots up into the air. You strip set hard and the fish begins to pull of line at an alarming rate. Permit on!

    Even on the best of days, fly fishing for permit can be frustrating.

    This wily fish is known for it's nervous nature and keen eye site.  Accurate casting is a must to have a chance and rarely do you get a follow-up shot. 

    For this exact reason we designed our Florida Keys Permit fly rod.  It's well-balanced, stable, efficient and true-tracking.  What does this really mean to you? 

    Accurate casts at controlled distances with the right presentation.  So give yourself the best chance to tie into a permit and enjoy every cast. 

    Take one of our Florida Keys Permit rods on your next saltwater adventures.

    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.
