On April 9th I couldn’t wait to travel from Vancouver, BC to the Dallas airport to catch my afternoon flight to Belize City.
With my birthday rapidly approaching on the 10th, I had decided to make my way to San Pedro, Belize in early preparation of the arrival of 6 other anglers who were scheduled to arrive on April 16th.
As always, laying over in Dallas was warm and pleasant, as the smell of Spring scented the air. My bags were packed, my fly boxes were stocked, and my white Canadian belly kept doing the happy dance, forcing me to squeal with spontaneous outbreaks of girlish “eeks!” and hand clapping. I was beyond excited to step foot on the bow of a concentrated guide boat in search of that birthday fish of a lifetime… the famous permit!
