Too late to make the newsletter was Sandy Walker’s lovely permit, caught this morning on the Crossing Rocks flats, guided by Joe Bodie. Sandy, the Club’s manager for its first five seasons, is back in Abaco taking a family holiday. They spotted the permit tailing about 300 yards away in flat calm conditions.
Here’s Sandy’s commentary: “Joe wanted it to be 25 lbs plus, but I’m not happy with that. It was a lump but not over 18-20 I think. Even on a 9wt it was a twenty minute battle and I knew I had good heavy leader material so there was no thought of it breaking off. This guy was actively feeding but refused the fly the first time, but was all over it the second time I dropped it to him. It was so calm we could see the whole thing as it happened; heart-stopping stuff but worth the years of trying”.
