Fishing is a way of life for many, just ask 11-year-old Jhoan Hernandez who says that fishing is his favorite past time here in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye. Jhoan has been fishing since the tender age of four and takes advantage of any opportunity he encounters to do what he loves the best, fishing of course!
For his hard work and dedication Jhoan was awarded the Central American Junior Angler 2013 Award during assembly at the Holy Cross Anglican School which he attends on Ambergris Caye. This is the first time that a Belizean was nominated and has won such an award. Presenting Jhoan with a picture plaque with the signatures of the board members of Accurate Reel was Rudy Lewis of Fishing Strike Force Belize and Roberto “Robbie” Guerrero, President of the San Pedro Game Fishing Association.
Congratulations to Jhoan Hernandez!
