I've stumbled onto a fairly remarkable game of hooking barracudas on green tube flies from the beach, and for the life of me, I can't figure out why anyone would trade this in for catching little bonefish on the flats. Frankly, I can't understand why you'd trade this for the guaranteed frustration of chasing permit on the flats. I'm telling you this... I'm not going to do either of those things. I'm going to play with cudas as long as I can.
