The Avalon Permit fly is a shrimp imitation that sinks quickly, stays hook side up (helps eliminate snags), and makes clicking noises similar to a shrimp. Great for Cuban destinations because the Permit key in on shrimp rather than crabs. Don't limit this fly to Cuba, though. It has proven to be effective for permit nearly everywhere!
New production of this fly is being tied as follows:
#8 as stated above is tied on #8 Tiemco 811S (This hook requires a lighter tippet)
#6 as stated above is tied on #8 SL-11 3H
#4 as stated above is tied on #6 SL-11 3H
#2 as stated above is tied on #4 SL-11 3H
The Gamakatsu SL-11 3H is one of the strongest and sharpest hooks available, and worth every penny when you hook-up with a fish of a lifetime!
Additionally, new production also includes a weed guard, which can easily be trimmed off if it is not necessary.
This Fly is also Available in Calico and in Blue.
