“Dear Saltwater Sportsman. I read your magazine and anticipate each new issue. I always read “The Traveling Fisherman” section and dream of places to go. I read that Belize was the hot spot for permit last month. I had a trip planned there and decided to target permit and tarpon instead of bonefish. Good choice!” _ – Don Helleu_
