RESULTS | TRES PESCADOS SLAM TOURNAMENT 2014
Yellow Dog's own Shaun Lawson and Doug McKnight just got back from the Tres Pescados Slam Tournament in Belize. After a few days of chasing permit, tarpon and bonefish, Yellow Dog took first! Here are the official results from Wil Flack of the Belize Permit Club. Big thanks go out to everyone involved!
The 6th Annual Tres Pescados Slam Tournament was a huge success thanks to all the anglers and sponsors that participated in Belize's largest ever fly-fishing tournament. Hats off to Team Yellow Dog Flyfishing for not only slamming on the first day but holding their ground on day 2 & 3 to bring home first place and the coveted slam trophy.
Day one saw beautiful weather and wind from the East as teams rallied early to make the most of the conditions. All three species were caught the first day, with Team YELLOW DOG capturing the first slam of the contest and gaining those valuable bonus points. A three way tie for second and two teams tied for third place was sure to make day two interesting.
The second morning brought similar weather conditions and teams pushed early on to catch the all important slam. Both permit and tarpon saw the scoreboard as well as numerous bonefish. Team AM FILMS closed the gap on leaders YELLOW DOG with three permit landed and needed only the tarpon on the final day to make things interesting.
Final morning brought some early rain showers and cloudy skies making the fishing difficult and frustrating. Leader board at the top had YELLOW DOG in the lead, trailed closely by AM FILMS in second and TARPON MANIACS rounding out the top three. Tide played a huge factor during the final day as water was held off the flats by the north wind. In the end Team YD prevailed and was crowned the 2014 Grand Champions.
Huge thanks to everyone involved in making this an historic event. Come join us next year for the 2015 Tres Pescados Slam Tournament July 9 - 11th in beautiful San Pedro, Belize.
