The Amazon, a truly unique spot for a fly fishing adventure…..
and adventure definitely applies to this trip. What we
enjoyed the most about this trip is that it was so different
from all the other salt water or fresh water trips we’ve taken.
The Peacock Bass is a terrific sport fish on a fly. It grows
to large sizes (15 and 20+ pound fish are not uncommon)
and is a beautiful finned creature. They are aggressive
takers and, when the water levels are right, the norm is
150 to 300 fish weeks. Of the many other species that are
available, the Arowana is the most spectacular because
you can stalk them near the surface and take them on top.
They are also a beautiful fish, with large silver scales
similar to a tarpon.Our destination of choice is a “fly fishing,
catch and release only” lodge – the only one of its kind in the
Amazon. It is located on a unique clear water river which
facilitates sight fishing and, because its located in a special
nature preserve, can only be fished by clients of this
particular lodge (see link to detailed trip report below).
This particular lodge is only four years old and has quickly developed a very loyal following of repeat clients making space very difficult to obtain. We hold three blocks of space (4 to 6 spots each) during the prime time. The entire prime season is sold out for next year and we are still 11 months away. If this trip is on your list of things to do, better get on the wait list now.
