Our buddy Wil Flack at the Belize Permit Club called. He wanted to update some marketing content for his new lodge, and we happily obliged. Team member Will Phelps headed down to the tropics with a few Pelican cases and dreams of capturing permit. He returned to Montana with smiles and hard drives.
Belize Permit Club is located in a remote area of Hopkins and is home to world-class fly fishing for permit. Wil and his team have created a new lodge for small groups of permit-hungry anglers in the heart of Belize. BPC has comfortable accommodations within walking distance to the boat. Great fishing and food and fantastic guides — we can’t wait to get back.
TWO GRAND SLAMS IN TWO DAYS Bonefish + Permit + Tarpon x 2
BGP member Will Phelps put together a quick personal edit while on a content gathering assignment in Belize.
It’s not unheard of, but two grand slams in two days is a rarity! “We never expected it to be this good. On the last two days of our trip to Belize, it all came together. The calm and sunny conditions were perfect for flats fishing. Thanks to our incredible guides, Lincoln Westby and Marvin Leslie, two grand slams were boated. Luck was on our side, and angler Damien Nurre got it done”.
Check out the edit.
