Fly Fishing Tournament For Permit Approaches
Anglers are to target permit and recall the late angling legend Del Brown Sunday through Wednesday, July 17-20.

The tournament angler who catches the largest total inches of permit on fly on the flats earns the title of grand champion. Awards also await the grand champion guide, runner-up grand champion and the angler who catches the event?s largest permit. Champions receive original artwork as prizes.
