Key west flats fishing report 6/9/13

This is my first post for almost 2 weeks and I do apologize. The first week without a report was because I did not fish, I am very easy going but when someone books me for a week and does not show up it does piss me off. The last 6 days I had the pleasure of fishing Florenzo, he is a truly gifted fly fisherman from Italy. In 6 days of fishing truly horrific fishing conditions “wind, clouds and rain” we jumped 17 tarpon and had a few more eats but here is the kicker we did not land 1, crazy. Today I fished with long time client and friend Carl from Connecticut. The winds started to pick up so we decided to go permit fishing, this is a fish on Carl’s bucket list. We headed west of Key west to catch the incoming tide off the gulf, Our first fish was a very nice barracuda but soon the permit started to come in. We focused on permit and after a few shots we hooked up on our first permit but we lost it. We landed our very next permit we saw but missed a few more before I decided to move. Carl hooked up on the first fish we saw on our next flat. The next spot we saw 4 fish and carl landed 2, not bad for a first time permit fisherman.
