Peacock Bass Fishing: “Savage” describes these Brutes in the Amazon, Brazil
Peacock Bass are aggressive, territorial ambush hunters, known for explosive strikes and tackle busting runs. These fish are nearly unstoppable on their first few runs. “Savage” is the word the best describes these brutes, putting them high on the bucket list for fly and conventional anglers alike. Add the exotic backdrop of the Amazon rainforest and you have the makings of a singularly spectacular outdoor experience.
Brazil is the most famous and productive Peacock Bass fishery in the world, offering anglers the chance at catching numbers of Peacocks as well as trophies over 20 lbs. The fishing areas in the Amazon are extremely remote, so using a high quality, experienced outfitter is a necessity. We recommend 2 outfitters: Agua Boaand River Plate Anglers.
Agua Boa Amazon Lodge
Agua Boa is a conventional lodge situated on the banks of the Agua Boa River, a tributary to the Rio Negro. What separates Agua Boa from other Peacock Bass lodges is that the fishing is limited to catch and release, fly fishing only.
The rates at Agua Boa are $5,300 per person from October 8 to December 31, 2011, and $5,500 per person from January 1 to April 14. Rates are based on double occupancy accommodations and a shared boat / guide daily.

River Plate Anglers
River Plate has been hosting anglers since 1992, and they’ve evolved their operation over 30 years to offer a unique fishing program based around floating cabins and exclusive leases on Native and Government Reserves. These floating cabins give anglers multiple benefits over fixed lodges, mainly the ability to move to new fisheries every few days to guarantee shorter boat rides / less fishing pressure and the flexibility to move if the water conditions aren’t ideal.

- Access to unpressured or unfished water
- Flexibility to move during high / dirty water
