Any tips on fishing Australian permit?

I recently located schools of Australia permit (snub-nose dart) but have not had any success. I am hoping you can give me some pointers. I have tried various flies, including Merkins. Can you offer any suggestions?

Peter Morse is an Australian fly-fishing writer who has had consistent success with the Australian permit. I suggest you contact Peter, who I am sure would be helpful. His address is PO Box 33, Leura, NSW, Australia.
