Week In Review

Fishing was super this week, and thankfully the wind subsided. The highlight of the week was young Wilkes H, who caught a beautiful 20 lb. Permit on the fly with Capt. Cesar. He is the youngest angler to have landed a Permit on the fly at El Pescador. He and his family also qualified as open water scuba divers.
