Voracious Predators in the Heart of the Jungle
Peacock Bass are voracious eaters and react similarly to largemouth bass when a large fly pattern is placed in front of them; they crush it, only their power easily outmatches those of true bass. They perform aerial stunts when hooked and give up a stiff fight. Peacock Bass are primarily targeted in remote locations in the Amazon River Basin in Brazil. These warm-water fish sport a black spot on their tail very similar to a redfish as means of protection against larger predators such as the black caiman crocodile. But what truly makes these fish so unique is their array of colors – numerous shades of orange, yellow, red, blue, and green.
These trips are not for those without a sense of adventure and provide anglers with an unforgettable experience in one of the wildest and untouched places on the planet.
