Trip Introduction

Amazon adventure fishing trip in pristine Amazon and Savannah-land rivers for fly, lure and bait anglers. You will fish in some of the most beautiful rivers for an abundance of sport fish species including Giant Peacock Bass, the legendary Payara 'Vampire Fish' and huge 'Golden Poon' Sardinata.

The Fishing

Our anglers will have the opportunity to fish for monster Payara on deep divers and other deep lures and Sardinata on small poppers and jigs/flies in the main Rio Orinoco and its rapids. In the lagoons of the Rio Tomo and in the Rio Mesetas, we have many big Three Barred Peacock Bass to be caught on topwater propbaits, walking baits, poppers, spinner-baits, jigs, minnowbaits and flies.

Our anglers can also try their hand at bait fishing for some real Giants, Surubim, Piraiba, Jau, Redtails and other big Cats on the Rio Orinoco.

Finding many of these species in one place is amazing, but to have all these species, in the sizes and abundance that we do have here, makes this place simply a fisherman’s Paradise.

The Accommodation

The Rios Orinoco and its tributaries are some of the most beautiful rivers in the Amazon Rainforest. The Tuparro National Reserve and the surrounding jungle and Savannah lands are spectacular and full of wildlife.

We will move between our Lodge on the Orinoco with comfortable twin rooms, to our camp up into the Tomo/Mesetas area, giving our anglers the possibilities of catching plenty of large Peacock Bass. Large individual tents are set up on the banks of the river and are comfortable in every way, each with single beds. An eating and ‘chilling’ area will be set off apart from the tents.
