If you didn’t yet have the chance to see this amazing documentary of Belize, now is the time to check it out. If not for the important message then for the amazing tropical fishing footage.
Belize is a country in Central America with rapidly growing tourist industry. The film is portraying two fly fishing guides, Abbie Marin and Lincoln Westby as they chase the Tarpon and the Permit in the flats. They are perhaps the ones that have to deal with the impact of rapid development on the nature the most. Here’s how Lincoln expresses his thoughts about the changes around the fishing business:
Beginning of my life, it was all about killing fish.
Then it turned around to this stage where you’re thinking more about saving them.
-Lincoln Westby, Fly fishing guide
