The 990-4 goes to Baja
The new 990-4 Permit took a trip down to Baja this spring with our friend Kate Taylor. We thought that we’d pulled a fast one on Kate; the rod is clearly labeled “Permit” but there are no Permit on the coast of Baja! Recklessly disregarding the rods labeling, Kate’s been fishing hard and hooking huge roosterfish like the one above. The 990 Permit was designed to throw wind resistant permit flies with ease, and turn heavy fish once they’re hooked. It turns out that these qualities lend themselves well to the Rooster fishery in Baja. Thanks for the photos, Kate!
Spring time is the right time for Roosters in Baja. April and May see Kate Taylor and Justin Crump hosting roosterfish trips based out of their beautiful lodgings on the Baja coast. Contact Kate Taylor at kalamityk8 (at) gmail.com for more information.
