These little bruisers get to 10lbs + and are some of the strongest-fighting and most acrobatic fish for their size in the Amazon. They are normally shoal fish and each will fight with the others to be the one to get to your lure first!
They are normally found in the shade of big trees that hang over the river in fast current. A well-placed small popper, walk-the-dog lure or fly cast under the trees work really well for these silver ballistic missiles.
They can also be caught on sweetcorn, grasshoppers, snails, beetles, small plastic beads, fruits and spinners and even small pieces of fish and worms.
