ARTICLE OF INTEREST: TOM BROKAW AND BELIZE ON THE OUTDOOR CHANNEL


Belize will be featured on the Buccaneers and Bones TV series on the Outdoor Channel in January featuring anglers such as Tom Brokaw from NBC, and actor Michael Keaton and other celebrities. The television series will be narrated by Brokaw and will explore the wonders of Belize’s world-class bone fishing through the eyes of this all-star cast who have devoted a significant part of their lives to conservation causes.

The program will unveil some of the latest research in game fishing, which will both help anglers catch more fish and better save the fragile coastal habitats.  Viewers will be encouraged to do their part to preserve these tropical species so that future generations can experience all that great game fish have to offer.

The show will consist of seven episodes and will premiere in January. Listings for time and dates are available on the Outdoor Channel’s website. The Outdoor Channel’s promotional writeup on the upcoming shows says “See what happens when a legendary anchor, famous actor, television star, acclaimed author, visionary industry leader, Bonefish & Tarpon Trust board member and the co-founder of Reel Women all share an island for one week. Tom Brokaw, Michael Keaton, Yvon Chouinard, Thomas McGuane, Zach Gilford, Bill Klyn and Lori-Ann Murphy cast off from San Pedro Island in Belize in pursuit of 3 legendary species: bonefish, tarpon and permit.”
