Permit can reach a maximum length of 48 inches (122 cm) and can weigh up to 79 pounds (36 kg), according to the Florida Museum of Natural History. Adult Permit will feed on crabs, shrimps and small fish. Most of the time when you are fishing for permit you need to get your fly down onto the bottom into the feed zone. A range of weighted flies are needed, although some times in Australia floating crabs work great in the surface. They are strong fast fish so nothing less than a 9 wgt fly rod is recommend.
