One box of flies to dominate any permit destination. The Ultimate Permit Kit is based on our best performing permit flies and includes our updated permit flies!
We have selected our top performing guide-style permit flies and most popular colors that cover every permit destination from Xcalak to Belize and the Faraway Keys.
These new Ultimate Permit Kits include our newest inventory of permit flies. These patterns are revised and improved with the best Umpqua X-Series Flats hooks and XH Flats Jig Hooks. After extensive testing, we believe these to be the most functionally designed flats hooks on the market.

Meet the Guanaja Fly Tyers Guild. They are the primary supplier and designers for Guide Flies and the inspiration to pass on the art of fly tying to this incredibleisland community.
It started by recognizing the natural fly tying talent that existed in the community of Guanaja. The guides and family members of the Fly Fish Guanaja staff had learned the basics of fly tying and made creative flies for technical permit and bonefish that were not easily fooled.
Over the the last three years they have worked hard to perfect their craft. What began as an experiment in the beach front cabana, has turned into one of the greatest small business opportunities for the Island of Guanaja.
The team of fly tyers that make the Guanaja Fly Tyers Guild is instructed and led by Dave McKenna. They work daily to make the custom tied flies you can purchase through our website. They are self managed and work with an entrepreneurial approach to their business of fly tying.
Through the challenges of passing hurricanes and the Covid-19 pandemic, they have persevered and worked with pride to make the flies we offer here.
We all thank you sincerely for the support and orders that have helped bring the entire team through the hardest parts of the past year. We are very excited to share our newest flies and designs with you!
