On Saturday night, May 4th fishermen of San Pedro descended upon the Tres Pescados Fly Shop for the Fly Fishing Film Tour presented by Costa Del Mar.
The night started with a presentation to local legend Mr. Carlos Marin. Because of his life-long contribution to the sport fishing community in San Pedro, Mr. Marin was presented with a LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD by Alyssa Flota of El Pescador.
Also in attendance were the cast & crew of the Buccaneer’s & Bones TV series. Among the cast was former news anchor Tom Brokaw, musician Huey Lewis, angling legend Lefty Kreh and Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard.
The evening was filled with fly-fishing videos from around the globe. Those seated in the crowd had a chance to win fabulous prizes such as COSTA shades and a YETI Cooler. In the end, the event raised $1130USD for the bonefish, permit and tarpon of Belize!
Tres Pescados Fly Shop owner and event organizer Wil Flack: “We are very proud to donate the proceeds of this event to Bonefish Tarpon Trust’s new ‘Nurture Belize’ program. This local effort will help benefit fisheries and habitat conservation right here in Belize. I want to personally thank everyone who showed up to support our cause.”
