Tongue’s Inshore Super Grand Slam

On March 11, 2024, Thomas Tongue has an incredible day of fly fishing while visiting the Blue Horizon Lodge in Belize. Thomas and his guide started the day casting along the mangrove-laden shoreline where he checked off his tarpon and an impressive snook. Being well on his way to the slam, Thomas and his guide then focused on the flats where they were successful in finding both the permit and the bonefish to cap off the IGFA Inshore Super Grand Slam!
