With lures, flies, cutbaits and other baits, dozens of different fish will keep the avid angler busy the whole trip! Hard-fighting ‘Essequibo’ Peacock Bass are some of the toughest and meanest Cichla species found anywhere in the Amazon. These amazing predators can be caught on medium-sized walk-the-dog lures like spooks and skitter walks, small poppers, propbaits and on jigs, flies and minnowbaits. They will smash topwater lures with abandon and there is nothing like the strike of a Peacock exploding on a lure worked across the surface. Tough prehistoric-looking Hymara or Wolf Fish lurk in quiet pools and smash topwater lures, spinnerbaits and minnowbaits. They are also caught on cutbait. The slash-and-grab Payara/Vampire Fish and the Pike-like Bicuda visibly chase minnowbaits, jigs and flies in the faster water. They are often seen crashing on baitfish on the surface. Payara will take cutbait too. Monkey Fish/Aruwana also make a regular appearance and will annihilate topwater lures, minnowbaits and jigs. Giant Black Piranhas and Corvina/Pescada can also be caught using small lures, spoons and deep-jigging in the bigger pools and fast currents. We also target the fish all anglers want to catch in the Amazon, the giant Arapaima that grow over 400lbs! We have four separate twin tents from the USA with cot beds and sheets, handling a maximum of only 8 anglers at any one time. A separated area is screened off with a running shower and flushable toilet and the local Amerindian guides and staff sleep apart and under the forest canopy. An area is set up for our ‘dining room’ and the kitchen supplies cold drinks and hot food to our guests. Laundry is done daily.
