PEEC/REAL DEAL News:
Do you love to fly fish? Or just watch beautiful scenery? Check out Fish Night.
The Reel Deal Theater and PEEC will present two exciting short films that teach sustainability through fly fishing at 7 p.m. Friday, March 29 at the Reel Deal Theater.
For one night only, you can see Jungle Fish and Currents of Belize, which take viewers on eye-opening journeys to South America and Belize.
Jungle Fish follows three expert fishermen deep into the heart of Guyana’s rain forest. They seek the largest freshwater fish in the world, the arapaima, in hopes of bringing a viable sport fishing industry to the native peoples.
Currents of Belize focuses on the coastal tourist destinations that are being destroyed as developers rush to keep up with demand.
The filmmakers seek a balance between the country’s natural resources and rising numbers of condos, golf carts, and foreign money.
There are more than just movies going on that night! Pajarito Brewpub will man a cash bar, serving beer and wine for the patrons of these movies.
Reel Life fly shop will come from Santa Fe and Toner Mitchell, President of Trout Unlimited, will introduce the films.
The brand new organization, Jemez Fly-Anglers Club, will accept memberships for anyone who would like to share fishing locations, stories, secret fishing holes, and more.
The event is $10 for adults and $5 for children at the door. Reel in a night of fun!
