tres pescados slam

tournament rules (PDF)

Since it’s inception in 2009, the TRES PESCADOS SLAM has remained Belize’s only catch and release fly-fishing tournament. Each summer anglers and guides compete for cash prizes, fishing equipment and bragging rights, all while having a fun time and supporting a great cause. In past years we have supported local projects that continue to help guide sustainable sport fishing in Belize. Organizations such as Bonefish Tarpon Trust, YDCCF, Oceana, Green Reef and the Ocean Academy have all benefited from the generosity of our supporters and sponsors. In the coming years we will continue to promote sustainable sport fishing, education and the protection of fisheries habitat. Long live bonefish, permit and tarpon.
