permit

  • All the other dorados have been watching. Like fingers reaching down to him, they descend… their shapes converge like living petals blooming from the stamen of the dead fish. The tiny flower whirls ever deeper, getting smaller and smaller, until it is no more.

Indo-Pacific Permit Video

March 06, 2011

Mad Phil Media follows Geoff Anderson and Simon Penn as they chase Permit along the isolated beaches of Western Australia’s Kimberley region in this trailer for Heads or Tails.

Bonefish & Tarpon Trust gives away sweet swag!

January 27, 2011

Enter 2011 Bonefish & Tarpon Trust SweepstakesIf you care about bonefish, or tarpon, or permit, you need to join Bonefish & Tarpon Trust. And, as an added incentive they’re giving away a prize to new members only worth tens of thousands of (U.S.) dollars! They ran a sweepstakes last year (2010) and it raised so many new member that they’re doing it again. It’s a WIN-WIN-WIN. The Trust gets funding to continue their good work, the tarpon, bonefish (and permit) benefit from their research, and you get a shot at a sweet, sweet fishing machine.

What’s in it for you:

This includes research that helps us understand how to properly fight, land, and release our beloved fish. They are also involved in raising public awareness through shows like Buccaneers & Bones (see trailer below).

2. You get the opportunity to win a Hell’s Bay Waterman complete with Evinrude motor.

Wade Fishing Cayman

July 17, 2009


A Taste of the Islands from Davin Ebanks on Vimeo.

How does one capture the silence, the light, the sense of space, and of course, the often high-paced action of fly fishing in the tropics? How, especially, in one film? Here is one of my early tries. (And, yes, I do have a better camera now.)

Here’s a sample of the variety available in the Cayman Islands, all on foot, by the way. Snook, bonefish, jacks, and permit: it’s all here.
