paper texture
Pirarucu Lodge is located in the middle of the largest arapaima reserves in the world. These waters are home to large numbers of arapaima, the largest freshwater species on the planet, but also host healthy numbers of arowana and tambaqui, which are often sight-fished with dry flies! Arapaima can grow to over 400 pounds and closely resemble a freshwater tarpon. When hooked, they explode in aerial displays, take off on long runs and surrender only after lengthy battles. Arapaima are often seen gulping air from the surface, offering sight casting to singles, pairs, or even schools of fish. Anglers will fish from comfortable, modern flat skiffs powered by 60 HP Yamaha outboards. These skiffs fish two anglers simultaneously with two large casting platforms, and the guides use a remote-control trolling motor to position the boat while fishing.
