Avalon Permit Fly

THE WORLD FAMOUS AVALON FLY !!!
The Avalon Fly is the result of scientific and technical research, which lasted for years.

Brian O'Keefe with a large Cuban Permit.

 Mauro Ginevri shows off his wildly successful Avalon Permit Fly.
The Avalon permit fly is the result of many years of intensive research. Since 2000, Mauro Ginevri has fished diligently for permit, using mostly crabs and shrimp patterns that were tied by the world’s most famous saltwater fly tiers. Many flies also were given to him by the guests, but due to lack of success, he began tying his own flies in 2001. It was not easy for Mauro, with hardly any fly tying materials and tying tools available. He learned his fly tying techniques by studying books and magazines that were left behind by the fishing guests. His real tying skills however, first started to develop when he took flies apart in the opposite way that they had been tied, to study the special techniques that the big masters were using.
His eagerness, enthusiasm and fanaticism for fly tying did the rest. Today, his biggest hobby is tying bonefish, permit and tarpon lies. Meanwhile, completely addicted to fly tying, Mauro had only one thing in mind. He wanted to increase his catches with a pattern that could really catch permit instead of spooking them. He also wanted to prove to himself that he was correct in his thoughts and strategies regarding permit that came to mind during all the intense research work. Finally, he wanted to design a fly that not only works in Cayo Largo, but in other locations in Cuba as well. It meanwhile became an obsession for Mauro to develop a pattern that sinks with a harmonious and elegant movement, while the hook stays upside down at all times, regardless of any retrieval speed. The solution came from the swimming pool near of Mauro’s tying room. He started to design and develop many creations, and each of them went through serious and intensive tests in the swimming pool, observed by snorkeling, and retrieved or stripped at different speeds by one of the guides. While being underwater, Mauro studied the action, position, mobility, sinking speed, and behavior of each fly. The guides were a great help and they gave Mauro a lot of suggestions and tips for improvements. Each prototype that passed Mauro’s tests were further tested at the permit locations by Mauro himself, the guides and even dozens of customers. The Avalon Permit fly is not a crab, but a shrimp pattern, and the main questions is why did Mauro construct his shrimp so long? The answer is simple. Several years ago while Mauro was studying about what kind of food the permit was most interested in at Cayo Largo, he searched the flats and feeding grounds of the permit together with master guide William. Snorkeling and diving was not really the best option to find the food, and therefore they used a little net to search for the available food.
Together they pulled the net over distances of almost 100 meters, and discovered on nearly every run they made, at least a dozen or more shrimp that were quite long (over 9 cm) and darker then the Gotcha fly. Then on the 25th of April, 2009, during another fly tying attempt, Mauro got the final touch. He was fully concentrated on the latest pattern design, while combining his previous ideas with something completely new that had suddenly come to mind. The ideal length of the claws, the material of the claws and to tie them in a delta wing position were the final keys for which Mauro had been searching for so long. At last, after many years he had found the perfect proportions that finally led to the fly’s enormous success. The keel design was not as easy as it looked in first place, because the monofilament had to have the perfect thickness and strength to hold four silver beads exactly in place, while at same time giving the fly the important extra weight needed to keep the hook in an upside down position. To find the best size for the loop was also a hard job. Thus, when length of the claws, the proper position of the claws, the exact loop size for the keel, the precise thickness of the monofilament and the correct weight of the silver beads were found, the fly could be in perfect harmony. The beads can move freely and this allows them to clack or snap when stripped. The two pieces of rabbit strip tied in a delta wing position prevent the fly from rolling over, and keep the pattern exactly in balance, even when retrieving speeds are changing. This time the fly passed the swimming pool test with flying colors, and on the 26th of April, 2009, Mauro gave his latest design to six customers to try in Cayo Largo that week! The result was beyond expectations: Five permit in a week. Mauro kept an excellent record of the results of all the catches of each day of the week. His reports not only included the temperature of the air and water, but also the number of tarpon that jumped and permit that were lost. Since the 26th of April 2009, until 2nd June 2011 , with the Avalon Fly there were 306 permits hooked and 212 landed. One permit took the rod and reel and 93 broke leader tippet or backing. There were only 7 permits caught with another fly pattern
The reaction of the permit, when the fly has been successfully launched, is to attack and take it without hesitation, just without suspicion.
The Avalon web site pictures 297 permit landed with the Avalon Permit Fly between 04/26/09 and 05/08/12.
Bonefish and tarpon also eat this fly. You better have some Avalon flies if you are headed to the Carribean.

Frog Hair FC Fluorocarbon Tippet Leader Building Material
Gamma's proprietary process of bombarding the material with Gamma Rays make FC Fluorocarbon stronger and more shock resistant. Landed with Frog Hair FC Fluorocarbon leader...
Gamma's proprietary process of bombarding the material with Gamma Rays breaks down the long strand structure in the monofilament and creates millions of intermolecular bonds to cross link structure, creating a stronger, tougher, more flexible tenacity material. For this reason Frog Hair offers up to 50% more shock resistance to other materials of the same diameter. After four full seasons of testing, Mark & Patty use Frog Hair FC Fluorocarbon  exclusively for their saltwater leader material.
It is IGFA Class rated.

Tested by Professional Fishing Guides at The Fly Fishing Shop.

Landed with Frog Hair FC Fluorocarbon leader...
Frog Hair FC is truly your competitive new advantage in both fresh and salt water.
Frog Hair FC is the latest advancement in fluorocarbon. Unlike other fluorocarbons, which behave `wiry` and stiff, Frog Hair FC is processed with GAMMA`s exclusive technology, resulting in the most supple and elastic fluorocarbon on the market. Now add in the superior refractive qualities of fluorocarbon and imagine the results! Frog Hair FC is truly your competitive new advantage in both fresh and salt water.

Frog Hair FC is an ultra high molecular weight PVDF fluorocarbon made using GAMMA`s exclusive processing technology. Unlike other fluorocarbon monofilaments that are very rigid and stiff, Frog Hair FC is processed to increase the flexibility of the material and provide up to two times the suppleness of other typical fluorocarbon monofilaments. The added suppleness compliments the refractive qualities of fluorocarbon to deliver the most stealthy, natural presentation possible and increase your catch rate.

In addition, GAMMA`s process increases the Shock Resistance of the material to help prevent untimely break-offs resulting from aggressive strikes. The built-in Shock Resistance also provides greater fighting capability and enable you to land more and bigger, world class fish than you could with other leading fluorocarbon materials.

Gamma Technologies` ability to build a better product is accomplished by the willingness to differentiate, and our philosophy to engineer products from the ground up. This results in superior performance and added value for the user.

The new GAMMA series of high performance fishing lines have been engineered and built to offer the angler the most preferred attributes of:
  • Higher Strength to Diameter
  • Higher Knot Strength to Diameter
  • Higher `Shock Resistance` to Diameter
  • Higher Abrasion Resistance
  • Higher Suppleness
