Jim Lampros, fishing manager of Orvis Cleveland, sent in these great photos, along with the story behind them:

Back in the early fall, my wife and I were fortunate enough to spend our honeymoon at El Pescador lodge in Belize. Words can’t really do the experience justice: Everything from the food to the staff to the fishing was truly exceptional.

As an added bonus, I got to play with one of the new H2 rods. I’d say it was up to the task, as it helped me bag my first ever bonefish and permit on our first day en route to a saltwater grand slam! Despite the success of our first day, howewver, even the H2 couldn’t save me on our second day out, as I failed to convert any of five shots at big permit, which has left me longing for a return.
