Welcome to the second edition of Dispatches, a new series which reports on the Big Sky Anglers crew as they travel the globe in search of angling adventures. Each edition of Dispatches will feature an interview with one of our angling pros while they are on assignment or traveling for fun. Our crew might be hosting anglers in a remote destination, guiding clients on our home waters, or exploring new fishing territory at home and abroad.

This edition features BSA founder, co-owner and head beard-scaper Joe Moore who is reporting from Placencia, Belize – The Permit Capital of the World. This is Joe’s first visit to Belize, and first time fly fishing for permit. Give a listen to what Joe and his wife Molly have been up to, and stay tuned for more reports from the BSA crew.
