Permit On Fly – The Holy Grail of Fly Fishing

Ascension Bay is home to the finest and most diverse flats fishing in the world.  It is also one of the best locations for targeting Permit on a fly in Mexico.

The weather in Ascension Bay is not as significant a factor as in other locations.  You will always be able to find a leeward flat or mangrove creek that is out of the wind and teeming with fish just waiting to snack on your fly.

Due to the netting ban in the Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve which surrounds Ascension Bay, it is now one of the few places where the fly fishing is getting better year on year.

Ascension Bay is not only about Permit.  Bonefish, Tarpon, Snook and Barracuda are also in abundance.

This Trip Is Tailored Around Permit on Fly

Ascension Bay provides superb sport for fly fishermen through most of the year, however, various factors dictate that May, although getting warmer is a prime month for Permit, and can ensure quieter weather on the ocean side, making the larger Tarpon more accessible.  Mavungana Flyfishing has secured the prime weeks to this Grand Slam destination.

Mexico really does offer the best value for money saltwater fly fishing available.

8 rods enjoy superb accommodations right down on the tip of Punta Allen, with direct access to Ascension bay with Casa Viejo Chac’s specialised skiffs.

Their guide team is extremely experienced, and as far as opportunities at Permit go, you will have plenty.

Expansive sandy flats, rising temperatures, good fishing and cold beer.  What more could you ask for?
