For the first time in Central America, the Tres Pescados Fly Fishing Shop on Ambergris Caye will be hosting the Costa 2012 Fly Fishing Film Tour. Annually, Costa del Mar selects a collection of short films produced and submitted by fly fisherman relating to their fishing adventures. Fishing enthusiasts will be happy to learn that this year, films will be screening in San Pedro Town for one day, including one related to Belize.

According to the host and organizer, Will Flack of the Tres Pescados Fly Fishing Shop, entries for the film were submitted from all over the world. Submissions are reviewed by a committee tasked with choosing the top films to feature in the tour. The top 10 to 12 films are picked and premiered in over 120 cities all over the world. The films focus on fly fishing and the adventures and stories that fly fishermen experience.

This year’s film tour is especially significant because one of the films chosen is “Geo Fish, a Maya Prophecy” and it features Belize. According to Flack, the film tells the story of two fishermen who drove a pickup truck that runs on vegetable oil from USA, through Mexico eventually making it to Belize. While not going into full details, Flack said the film showcases the beauty of Belize and its rich fishery; it is a film that anyone would enjoy.

The event will be a charitable one as all proceeds raised will be donated to the Bone Fish/Tarpon Trust – Project Permit which has a presence in Belize. Flack says that having the screening in San Pedro will give fishermen the opportunity to interact with others involved in the fly fishing industry in Belize. In addition those that attend will also be supporting an event that will generate funds that will eventually be used to educate others about the importance of the fishery habitats in Belize.

The event will take place on Saturday, April 28th at 7PM just in front of the Tres Pescados Fly Fishing Shop at the northern end of Barrier Reef Drive in San Pedro Town. Limited tickets are available for $30. As an incentive, those in attendance will have the opportunity to win a pair of Costa del Mar sunshades. For further information regarding the film, you can contact Will Flack at 226-3474 or by email at [email protected]
