We still have a few spots open for next season’s tourney week. Grab a fishing partner/teammate and sign up now! Our annual Permit Tournament held each spring has raised over $15,000 in donations for BTT’s Jon Ain Memorial Fund. Our tournament is a laid back and super fun competition that is supported by numerous fly fishing industry sponsors including Patagonia, Hatch, Country Pleasures, Temple Fork Outfitters, Howler Brothers, Winston, Costa, Fishpond, Yeti, Drake Magazine, and many more.
A special shout out to our headliner sponsors, Patagonia Clothing Company & Hatch Outdoors! Patagonia donates duffel bags of clothing and gear to all tourney participants and to our guide staff – while Hatch steps up to the plate each year with a half dozen 7+ and 9+ Fanatic Reels for our winners. All sponsors provide loads of giveaways and swag adding to the fun.
Six two-man teams compete in four competitive permit fishing days during the week, and an individual “biggest fish” category is in play all six days. Proceeds from the tournament and donations will benefit the Jon Ain Memorial Fund for the Bonefish Tarpon Trust as well as the schoolchildren of Punta Allen.
