River Plate Anglers
Fly Fishing Trip and Lodge Details:
Almost all Amazonian camps fish two anglers per boat. 20-40-horse outboards and electric trolling motors are standard equipment throughout the Amazon. Specifics on non-hosted trips are available on request. The trips Peacock Bass FIshing personally host always fish two anglers per boat, with an experienced Brazilian guide. They use stable 16 foot Lowe tunnel boats (in certain locations, they may use longer, narrower, flat bottom, canoe-shaped aluminum hulls to take advantage of their superior maneuverability). Each boat is equipped with a 40 hp Yamaha outboard (or a new, four stroke Honda) and an electric trolling motor. The guides will take you up or down river to locations that they know to produce fish, or, you are welcome to explore and try new waters. Most fishing is in the still water of lagoons connected to the river. Occasionally, under the right conditions, you may fish in the river itself, in locations which provide cover for structure loving peacocks. Your guide will start off each day with a plan so that you have an opportunity to fish new waters. Of course, if you've found a spot that you want to return to over and over, feel free to have your camp manager adjust the plan to accommodate you.
The guides are all expert peacock fishermen. They will help you to locate fish and they can guide you in lure selection. Peacocks relate to structure, making it very productive to cast to some tough spots. Don't worry if you get hung up or into the trees, your guide will promptly recover your lure for you. The guides are all native to the Amazon, are very well trained and know the rivers in great detail. They can always make their way back to camp in the evenings, no matter how far you've wandered or how lost you might feel. They are also well versed in the operation and upkeep of their equipment (as well as your fishing tackle) and can be counted on to make sure that everything works as it should. All that's left for you to worry about is where to cast and what to do with that wild thing on the end of your line once you hook up.
